Drenge- 'Undertow'

9/10

When Drenge first exploded onto the scene with their self-titled debut album back in 2013, they were greeted as this new breed of emerging British rock talent. The raw drive and passion throughout their sound made them one of the most instantly recognisable new bands in the genre and gained a huge cult following as a result. But returning with their latest album 'Undertow', it seems they have adopted a more refined sound that could make them even bigger.

After just a few tracks on this new release, it is clear to see that the duo have looked to make a more diverse and anthemic sound than their previous work. Still encased in that grunge shell, 'Undertow' likes to play around with its pace and flow, creating this exciting and, at times, unpredictable full-length. Its powerful yet harmonious approach shows a great level of depth within the band's songwriting and gives this record much more purpose and direction.

With riffs that could shake the foundations of any music venue, this new release is looking to be the one that cements their already well-known live shows into unforgettable juggernauts of pure power. Prepare to be blown away.
