Rising newcomers October Drift have gained a strong word-of-mouth following since exploding onto the music scene at the start of 2015. Despite the early success of their incendiary debut singles – receiving support from Steve Lamacq, John Kennedy and Q magazine to name but a few - and string of sold-out gigs, this band still remain something of an enigma. October Drift’s music is similarly ambiguous, characterised by their signature wall of sound guitars, soaring, ponderous vocals and driving, urgent drums. The band have gained a reputation for delivering blistering, high-energy live shows. Indeed, their first tour sold out before even releasing their first single, such is the buzz around their live performances. With a strong DIY ethos, the band record everything themselves in their own studio and even hand-make their own merchandise. This organic approach led them to a complete shun of social media throughout 2015. But that’s all set to change as the band’s word-of-mouth following continues to grow and the music press begin to take notice of October Drift’s melancholic growl.
