The Drones – ‘You’re Acting Like The End Of The World’
So The Drones are possibly my favourite band. I say ‘possibly’ because I don’t necessarily feel comfortable being held to such a grand statement but I’ve seen them live more than other band (around eight times) so they’re coming out on top on paper at least.
Their last album Havilah was great, as were the albums before it.Funnily enough, the latest single off it is ‘You’re Acting Like The End Of The World,’ which is possibly the least Drones-esque song in their oeuvre. They’ve done acoustic stuff before but this is more rollicking and less sinister than what fans might be used to. I kinda prefer my Drones a bit looser and darker but that’s mainly because it’s an aesthetic they’ve perfected rather than a reflection of the quality of this song. Get set for The Drones in jaunty mode – not as odd a match as you might expect.
They’re about to set out on tour so maybe sure you see them if you haven’t already – one of the best live shows for any band, not just an Australian one.
