REVIEW: October Drift Release Debut Album, ‘Forever, Whatever’
Written by Lois Thomas
October Drift’s debut album ‘Forever Whatever’ combines sensual melodic lyricism with immersive guitar riffs that you can’t help but sing along to. The love child of Pearl Jam and My Bloody Valentine, they have left their grungy mark on indie rock.
The honesty of Kiran Roy’s lyrics hand in hand with the enveloping distortion from the guitars creates an exhilarating effect for the listener. The album speaks volumes of the band’s synchronicity and imagination, virtues that have served them well throughout their career.
Titles such as, ‘Losing Hope’ and the leading track ‘Forever Whatever’, spark ideas of optimism following loss and loneliness. Kiran Roy’s powerful words layer the catchy choruses leaving the listener clinging to every beat. ‘Forever Whatever’ is an album that is sure to become a staple of all rock-pop fan’s playlist as the new year comes into the swing.
