Artist of the Week – Drift

Our pick for artist of the week this week is Paisley-based electronic pop duo Drift, who with their latest single release ‘The Isle Of, Pt.2″ are back in the foreground of the Glasgow music scene.

The band has released this song that is close to their hearts, having been written about a trip to the Isle of Arran for a friend’s birthday party, which seems like quite a foreign concept especially at the moment being firmly in the Covid era. One of their previous singles The Isle Of was Linzi’s tribute to the Isle of Arran whereas this time around Andrew wrote this song on their return from the party about “anxiety, ego, friendship, and self-belief. The feeling of being scared of acceptance by another group, throwing yourself into an experience, and having a great time.”

The Isle of, Pt.2 is the bands sixth single and is one that we are patiently waiting to see live. Have a listen below:
