October Drift - I Don't Belong Anywhere

Physical Education

“Deep vocals and booming guitars coalesce, charging up before launching into surprisingly catchy pop-edged choruses.” – Daily Star

“Beautifully channelled ’90’s indie and alternative rock from Mudhoney’s harshness to Teenage Fanclub’s slacker melodicism.” – Louder

“Bold and brash, tender and understated, and perhaps most importantly vital” – Clash

“… both powerful and vulnerable at the same time” – Kerrang

“A superb band with superb tunes” – Louder Than War

October Drift have released their brand new single ‘Waltzer’, the latest song to be taken from the forthcoming second album I Don’t Belong Anywhere. The album will be released on October 14th via Physical Education Recordings and is available to pre-order here.

Featuring deliciously raw riffs alongside a melancholic yet propulsive rhythm, ‘Waltzer’ plays like early Smashing Pumpkins as the band reflect battling the darker depths of the mind.

Regarding the single frontman Kiran Roy says, “‘Waltzer’ always makes me think of Robert Eggars film The Lighthouse. The isolation and spiralling madness of the film really echoes with this song. I guess it’s mainly about the fog of depression. It’s a kind of focus lens on my lowest and darkest thoughts, as well as a reflection of people I love and care about who have themselves battled with these kinds of things.”

‘Waltzer’ is taken from the forthcoming album I Don’t Belong Anywhere and follows the release further singles from the record including ‘Insects’‘Airborne Panic Attack’ and ‘Webcam Funerals’, the latter proving a radio hit with great support from BBC 6Music and Radio X.

I Don’t Belong Anywhere is a taut, visceral record, and a step forward for the band into an even more powerful, brutal sound following their highly acclaimed debut album Forever Whatever in 2018. Far less introspective than their debut, I Don’t Belong Anywhere is October Drift’s totem for bringing us all together again.

The album is about connection and one that’s truly from the heart, rich with added layers of meaning it finds the band poised to explode across 2022 with their most thoughtful and exciting record yet.
