Divide and Conquer music review.
"If you like the sounds that struck the music world with fire and energy during the early 80s and 90s then you'll like Drainz. It was hard to pinpoint who this group of gents from Portsmouth England sounded like because they sounded to me like a bit of everything. Drainz dish out catchy melodies and lyrics with drum beats that made me want to do the pogo dance from any number of new wave moves from my youth. I think Drainz has a sound that is worthy of the big time"
Hey everyone we're Drainz. We are based in Portsmouth, our music style is indie/psychedelic as well as beautiful weird noises. Its hard to pinpoint exactly what our influences are for Drainz. We all come from different styles of musical playing making our tastes in music very different our favourite bands range from Radiohead to The Replacements which has a great impact on the music we create with everyone bringing their own unique skills to all our songs. We have been together for over 2 years and have already built up a good reputation around the south coast playing successful shows in Brighton London and Portsmouth as well as supporting Johnny Foreigner at the Joiners in Southampton. We have also recently released our debut EP Drainz which was recorded by the brillant Brad Dorey. We are also planning to hit the studio again soon to get some more tunes down either for another EP or our debut album which we can't wait to get started on.
Our debut EP Drainz is a mixture of all our our different stories and experiences of just trying to get by in this big world we live in. Each song helps tell the story of the dark places a troubled mind can go and the light which can shine through when you explore the different realms of what your capable of. It also explores some of the addictions of everyday life such as how we spend our lives away social media and how we sometimes just wish we were like everyone else.
