If Courtney Love and Sid Vicious had a baby and it was raised on The Dresden Dolls, L7 and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, what would it sound like? DRAG are the answer. The brazen four-piece have been reared in Birmingham and were conceived over three years ago. Spewing out raucous riffery and killer hooks, the rising Midlanders spit out a sound that’s loaded with attitude and unbridled energy. Their stage show is always mesmerising and hard-hitting; their performances ooze sexual prowess and are as compelling as they are defiant.
Composed of Heather (Vocals), Velma (Guitar), Matt (Bass), and Andy (Drums), DRAG have toured throughout the UK and have shared the stage with the likes of Toyah Wilcox, SPiT LiKE THiS, Eureka Machines, Fuzzbox, Mister Joe Black, The Sex Pistols Experience, The Ramonas, and Amanda Palmer (The Dresden Dolls). The High-flying foursome have also made numerous appearances throughout the tattoo festival circuit. As well as building a formidable live reputation, the unstoppable noiseniks have received glowing accolades from everyone from Skin Deep to BBC; the sleazy punks have also racked up critical acclaim throughout the underground.
DRAG’s music was born out of a love for the 90’s riot grrrl era, and their DIY ethic has been one of the defining features of the band since their inception. It is therefore a natural progression that their forthcoming debut album, “Neurotica: A Compendium of Tales Regarding Body and Mind” has been funded completely independently through Kickstarter. As the title suggests, “Neurotica: A Compendium of Tales Regarding Body and Mind”, deals with some deep and dark topics; with lyrical themes that address issues that most other bands wouldn’t touch, such as self-harm, mental health, and sexuality, DRAG do this without sacrifice or apology—their music is their art and the band pour everything into their craft. From the tragically poignant ‘Dandy Boy’ to the explosively aggressive ‘Dead Zebra’, DRAG take the audience on a roller coaster of emotions and have produced an electrifying album that will command your attention.
