After playing live over the last couple of years, A Drone Coda hit their strides with the release of Don't Care and A New Way, a double A-side single that rumbles and lurks before setting things ablaze with a whirr of guitars and drums.
Formed out of the ashes of instrumental outfit Colourful Racing Identities (ex-members of which now feature in the widely acclaimed Hoodlum Shouts), A Drone Coda bring together tension and texture into their tightly wound songs, heavy on the influence of punk minimalism, noisy indie rock and burning slow-dances.
These two songs form part of an upcoming EP - to be released in early 2014 - that has been recorded live over the last six months in the ramshackle surrounds of Brick Lane by hellosQuare's Shoeb Ahmad with a stark room sound influenced by the early Factory Records productions while a few of the recordings (including A New Way) feature some of Shoeb's trademark manipulations and scrapes amongst the claustrophobic space that A Drone Coda carve into their music.
