Drive By Wire offer an intriguing and unique mixture of fuzz-laiden desert/stoner rock grooves and trippy, hazy vocals of Simone Holsbeek. A trip through the dusty desolate desert landscape, the swampy river delta, home to the band, 70′s psychedelica, but also heavier themes inspired by the harsh reality of life and struggle with personal demons. Drive By Wire manages to distill these inspirations into a warm organic sound with the urgency and dynamics of 90′s grunge (Soundgarden, Alice in Chains), the sensuality of PJ Harvey and the deliciously heavy psychedelic fuzz grooves of 70′s bands such as Black Sabbath.
The Whole Shebang is an awesome album made of ’70 psychedelia and ’90 grunge atmospheres. Argonauta Records are now re-releasing this album to celebrate the band’s 10 year career. It will be released on May 19th and s available for pre-order through here. Listen to The Whole Shebang in full here:
