When October Drift appeared at the start of 2015 with their beefy yet melodic sound, they had the confidence to win over audiences. Ever since then, from multiple sold out 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.
Despite the early success of their incendiary debut singles – receiving support from Steve Lamacq, John Kennedy and Q magazine to name but a few, 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.
Coming off the back of their successful UK and European tour and sandwiched between performances at Great Escape Festival and Camden Rocks, catch their blistering live show at Modern Art Oxford… the immediate future is very bright (and very loud).
