“Reverb, distortion, chimes, melodies, grooves, beat, its all here. It’s a sonic buffet of all-you can eat Shoegaze inspired fuzz-ballad” RGM

“Their songs are simply breathtaking – fiery porcupine-print guitar riffs” The Review

“Selling out some of the best small venues in Britain thanks to a flourishing reputation for live shows” The Independent 

“Sugar coated power-rock” Q Magazine

“Bellowing bluster of guitars and thumping instrumentation that should act as a vehement and fully-charged bridge in to wherever they might head next” Gold Flake Paint

When October Drift appeared at the start of 2015 with their beefy yet melodic sound, they had the confidence to win over audiences.

Since then, from multiple tours up and down the UK, to growing online hype around their sparse but eloquent releases, they’ve done just that, becoming a major success story on the independent circuit.

And while staying independent and playing every town and city that will have you isn’t exactly the stylish thing to do, October Drift’s irresistible combination of feedback and harmonies deserves to shake every room in the country.

With shows at BBC6 Music Festival, Great Escape and a slot on The John Peel Stage at this years Glastonbury Festival already under their belts alongside a cult fan base spreading the word, and a focus too few peers in their position possess, the immediate future is very bright (and very loud).

“Brooding, personally-etched song writing” Clash

“A distinct lack of social media presence made sure early cuts were shrouded in a sense of mystique, serving only to heighten the growing buzz” Line of Best Fit

“A band we’re probably all going to know about very soon” Louder Than War



FEMUR have been hailed as purveyors of murky rock, striking up menacing live performances laced with lethal doses of grunge and psychedelia. High calibre gigs with Wytches, Avalanche Party, Bloody Knees and Slowcoaches have manifested into a sleep-when-you’re-dead mentality that can be felt shaking the foundations of their April 2018 EP. ‘In Your Belly’ is a dynamic 4-track composition of vitriolic lyrics clinging to a soundtrack that threatens to bite through to your core. Keep a sharp eye out for this Sheffield-based rabble
