Next month, Exposed recommends…

October Drift

Plug // May 8 // £7

October Drift, the band who managed to turn heads and sell out live shows all over the UK without so much as a tweet to their name, arrived onto the scene shrouded in mystery due to their lack of online presence. It sent a clear message to the industry: it’s all about the music, not the gimmicks. And if your music tendencies lean towards reverb-soaked guitars, rising maelstroms of melody and ferocious onstage performances, then October Drift are just the ticket for you. Speaking of tickets, seven quid for a live show you won’t forget in a hurry seems like great value to us. Support comes from the impressive Ordnance, whose futuristic blend of indie-electronica could just be the start of something wonderful.
