Somerset’s four-piece October Drift have shared ‘Losing My Touch’, the first taste taken from the forthcoming debut LP. The track is also the first release under the umbrella of the band’s new label, Physical Education Recordings.
Built on layers of distorted guitars and spacious chord progressions, the track lays on the powerful fragility of frontman Kiran Roy. He depicts a landscape of introspection, despair and hope, drawing influences from sonic explorations typical of My Bloody Valentine. “It’s a song about trying to keep your head above the water. – he says – It was written at a time when everyone around me seemed to be moving on with their lives and I was stuck in the same place. It’s basically about the fears of getting older and underachieving, but trying not to let it get to you and even staying optimistic in spite of those fears.”
The numbers follows up to the previously released singles ‘All Broken Down’ and ‘Come And Find Me’, and marks the first step while approaching to the release of the debut album.
