Play 90 second soundbite of 'Missing Monotony' @ 'CD quality'
Drag get straight to the point with songs that are concise and totally rockin' - no-prisoners-taken pseudo-punk rock that superbly thought out and stunningly delivered. Incessant riffin' guitars cut through the rhythm section's perfectly weighted barrage and even when combined they leave sufficient room for the crackin' vocals to be heard and, in the main, understood. Just three tracks here - but three tasty little works that stimulate and tantalise, 'Jeffree Star', 'Missing Monotony' and 'Anorexic' - all impressive, all chocker with the same gutsy energy and drive - a great introduction to a very confident sounding bunch.
I really can't fault what Drag are doing or how they are doin' it - except maybe that their take on post-punk rock doesn't actually go to places that others haven't visited at some time or other. Now, that said, Drag do such a damn fine job here that I don't think it really matters too much - Drag just make it sound so bloody good and get away with it. I suppose the fact that there's three fems fronting Drag is a bit unusual and that's something they shouldn't be shy of promoting or even flaunting a little - why not, 'if you've got it...etc'.
Drag are exciting, punchy, solid and very, very enticing. What they've managed to do here in just three short tracks is quite remarkable; they've shown their unity, their passion and their ability - and Drag clearly demonstrate that they're a pretty awesome and extremely entertaining outfit. Excellent stuff!!
