: Exclusive Video Premiere: Dragged Up – Hex Domestic
Dragged Up are an off-kilter psych-garage proto-punk band. Formed in Glasgow in late 2018 by Eva Gnatiuk (Las Mitras), with Simon Shaw (Trembling Bells) & the writer Lisa Jones. In 2019, Chas Lalli (Vom/Bad Aura) & Julian Dicken (The Cosmic Dead) joined. In 2022 Stephan Mors (The Owsley Sunshine) replaced Dicken on drum duty.
Their debut mini-album D/U was released in 2020, show-casing their seamless cross-pollination of doom, psych, proto-punk, garage, and spoken word, to positive reviews and critical acclaim from the likes of Louder Than War: “like classic CBGBs proto-punk transplanted to rain-drenched Scottish streets” and Record Collector magazine: “an all-seeing, culture-cannibalizing slacker classic.”
Cruel Nature Records are releasing their new EP Hex Domestic on 8 September. The band will be playing some UK shows to promote it, including supporting The Bevis Frond in Glasgow on the 10th. They are currently working on their second album.
