CRITIC REVIEWS

90
FasterLouder
There are still guitars, bass, drums, and keyboards, but they’re scrambled by technology and recast as free-flowing passages of cryptic texture. Yet the new approach proves surprisingly accessible, despite The Drones’ continued passion for abrasion.

The Guardian

Despite the subject matter and often funereal pace, it’s anything but a drag.

Drowned in Sound

Much like the scrawled text on its cover, Feelin Kinda Free is rash, splintered and disarrayed - the recording is heavily overdubbed, swimming in strange atonal clutter and swells of menacing noise.

The Needle Drop
Australia's the Drones are back with their most instrumentally and lyrically dense album yet.

AllMusic

It's certainly not an upbeat listen, nor are its myriad regional allusions easy to parse for non-Australians, but it engages enough on a cerebral level that it's consistently intoxicating, even at its most lethal.

Gaz really knows how to open an album.

Very good record, full of catchy, glitchy songs and good lyrics. I think it is the band’s best record to date.

Worth a listen

It’s in its haphazardly placed noisy notes that this art rock album grabs me. The biting lyrics are slightly rapped, the vocals are cool and expressive, and the lumbering pace has gravitas bringing awe to the expansive moments.
