Cork’s The Drive. Return with Shoegaze-soaked Single ‘SNFC’

January 31, 2022

Cork-based four piece The Drive. originally formed in 2018. Signing to Egg Twelve Records in late 2019, The Drive.’s indie rock/shoegaze sound quickly turned heads, selling out their first headline tour. The band’s unique melting pot of genres caught quickly with the ears of Spotify Editors, international radio, and national press.

‘SNFC’ was written by frontman Eoin Murphy and guitarist Konrad Radzki whilst polishing off the band’s 2020 EP ‘Easy Now’. With smitherings of Radiohead, Inhaler, and Acid Ghost to the ear, ‘SNFC’ shows clear creative maturing from material previously released by the band.

When asked about the track, frontman Eoin Murphy stated that the song “means an abundance to us as a band. It’s really about questioning your own loyalty to others, and trying your best to put yourself first… Life goes on, and you can spend that time trying to be a better person for someone else, but is that what you really want?”

‘I could be a better man, is this what you want?’

‘I won’t ever fade, I won’t ever change myself for you. And all I know is you, but I won’t ever change myself for you. Not you.’

The first track featuring the bands new lineup with drummer Alex Redmond Galligan and bassist Alannah Hynes, ‘SNFC’ is a song that embodies The Drive. as a collective.
