New Music: Drenge – Backwaters

Brotherly duo Eoin and Rory Loveless are Drenge. Emerging earlier this year on a number of ‘one to watch’ lists, and gaining significant attention with their debut single ‘Bloodsports’, Drenge are now back with their follow-up ‘Backwaters’.

It’s a gut-wrenching rock track, featuring stand-out dirty guitars and swaggering vocals. The single is backed with the track ‘Necromance is Dead’. Let’s hope that there’s a full E.P. or L.P release on the horizon for Drenge.

Luckily, there are plenty of opportunities to catch Drenge on the live circuit this summer.
