Former Wollongong based, now Sydney five-piece, DROVES sprung onto the Australian independent music scene last year with their debut single ‘Time’ and have been kicking goals ever since. Releasing their debut EP ‘Bloodline’, which scored airtime on triple j, as well as playing Farmer & The Owl Festival and supporting some big names on the scene including RAAVE TAPES, San Mei, Bakers Eddy and Johnny Hunter.
Now DROVES are back with their latest single ‘Retribution’, a gripping new wave number driven by reverberating guitars, building percussion and chanting vocals, that sees the band explore and experiment their sound further. Think Foals meets New Order.
"'Retribution is the first instalment of many songs to come that challenge the established concept of society through an ironic blend of pop-hooks and dark imagery," states frontman, Phil Spiteri. "The song was inspired by the complete free reign that the rich are given to dig up and spit out the planet."
To celebrate the release of ‘Retribution’ the band are playing exclusive single shows in Sydney and Melbourne at the end of the month. Head to their Facebook for more info.
