Austin, Texas’s rock/new wave/garage pop collective Drakulas – comprised of members of Riverboat Gamblers and Rise Against, among other bands – has been hard at work on their debut LP Raw Wave. While we wait with baited breath for the release, here’s a little taste with their song “VHS”.
The song hits hard from the beginning and doesn’t let up. Drowned in heavy guitar, the vocals sing/yell their way through the song, with nods to older UK-based punk rock. Intensely buoyant, the song is an undeniable head bobber, complete with a deep, dark, less kosher vocal breakdown that makes it perfect for Halloween.
Seriously, we cannot wait for Raw Wave.
Raw Wave is available November 18th via Dirtnap Records. Drakulas will be playing Mohawk Austin tonight.
