To whet our appetites for the release of their (brilliantly titled) ‘Songs for the Sad Kids’ EP, London boys Drool take yet another step up, exploring adventurous new frontiers of their slinky grunge-pop stylings with ‘Transmission Commission’: an ominous sounding indie rock tune communicating a sense of foreboding and gripping anxiety through art rock guitars and imaginative lyrics painting a picture of some untoward, uneasy scenario, “he grabbed the phone and says try and I’ll leave you dead”.
Although the lads are currently owning the nightclub stages up and down the country, this is a song that would be just as at home played in stadiums (not to lay the expectation on too much or anything, guys), as the level of song writing maturity on display takes a flying leap forward while the excitement and vitality remains effortlessly intact.
‘Transmission Commission’ is the second song Drool have put out from the forthcoming EP ‘Songs for the Sad Kids’, which we understand is still without a release date.
If you happen to be skulking around Newcastle or Southampton at some point during April you can catch the band live at the below dates:
Sat 2nd April 2022 – Head of Steam, Newcastle Upon Tyne
