It can sometimes be pretty difficult to write about a band that you no NOTHING about and they have only one song to go off on. But, when they make the kind of music you love it isn’t so bad.
Dribble only formed at the start of the year, and given how much of a shitshow 2020 has been, we can consider Dribble to be one of the positive things to happen this year. They’ve got this beautiful heavy sound- a real raw Doom sound, and it is that sheer heaviness that lures you in right away. Think bands like KYUSS, Melvins etc. with a gnarly Punk feel. Basically, mix Black Flag, Minor Threat with Melvins and you will get Dribble. The only way to listen to Dribble is as loud as possible.
Something to really be in awe of is that the band are a duo. There’s only two of them making this beautiful noise (see, I was right about duos being the best!) Taking Off is a beautiful nod to the bands and styles of music that Luke and Thomas love. Taking Off has this effortlessly slick and heavy sound- the guitar feels like trees being hacked down and the drums are the intense echoing of the noise ricocheting through. The song will shatter through your rib cage and tear out your insides. All the gore, all the blood, all the mess. It is such a hard-hitting song. To have this much of an impact with just one song, well, you know they are going to do great things. Bands that have a heavy sound like this truly come alive in a live setting. It may be a while before we are able to witness Dribble in all their loud and rowdy glory, but it will most certainly be worth the wait.
I can’t wait to hear more from the band, but for now let’s all sit back and blast Taking Off as loud as possible.
Taking Off is out via the brand new DIY label, Pantherburn Records.
