Before 'Autonomy' Drenge cut loose on ‘Before The War Begins’
Words: Ellie Ward
Premiered last night (July 17) by Huw Stephens on BBC Radio One, Drenge return with a new track ) ahead of a new EP.
‘Before The War Begins’ is the first cut from the forthcoming 'Autonomy' EP which is set for release on October 5.
"'Autonomy' showcases some of our recent work, by way of verses, choruses, middle eights and all that other stuff you learn at BRIT school," say the Loveless brothers, with Eoin adding that “‘Before The War Begins’ is half a love-song and half a hate-song. Like most of our work, it's a experiment in traditional songwriting gone wrong. A long hot summer and a hosepipe ban has the narrator comparing their deteriorating and dehydrated love life to a war torn city. Along the way they consider how 62 years after the Hungarian revolution there are still places where you can see the bullet holes in the walls in Budapest and how being whisked up by an exciting stranger translates to a long term relationship.”
