“Utter quality. Each track is a bundle of joy and interesting musicianship that sits somewhere in between Life Without Buildings and Throwing Muses”

The Drink are Dearbhla Minogue (singing, guitar), David Stewart (bass) and Daniel Fordham (drums). They play odd guitar pop which combines the controlled chaos of Deerhoof with the fractured melodies of The Breeders, shot through with the joyful pulse of Talking Heads. Outside The Drink, Dearbhla is also one-third of psych-girl-garage-group The Wharves, one-third of post-hardcore-blues-army Shield Your Eyes, and has featured on Dublin’s Any Other City and Popical Island labels. David and Daniel were the rhythm section of much-loved London pop-post-rockers Fighting Kites.
