You know those Brisbane art-rock lads Drawn from Bees, right? The hair-dos, the suits, and the crazy schedule of writing, recording and releasing a fresh batch of music every six months, yeah?
The Sky Is Falling offers a respite from the pace of earlier releases; a breathier departure from the building rock crescendos of The Boy & The Ocean, and the controlled, rollicking beat of And The Blind Shall Lead The Way, which earned Album of the Week (Brag) and Indie Release of the Week (Rave).
With triple j favourite ‘Long Tooth Setting Sun’ still busily asserting Drawn from Bees across the radio waves as sharp, rock-laden harmonisers, lead track ‘Cables In The Sky’ taken from the latest EP will certainly cement this reputation upon the uptake. Opening with a playful sing-a-long refrain designed to get stuck in your head, the track is a down-tempo shift in gear that holds true to the undulating signature sound of Drawn from Bees.
Due for official release on Friday October 2nd via MGM, the The Sky Is Falling is the third studio offering since the rigorous creative schedules were imposed.
To coincide with the release, Drawn from Bees will again parade their modishly suited selves throughout NSW & QLD during October and November.
