Drat
Drat after a few years of plugging away in Ireland, gaining support from fans, promoters and the media, the 'reliably brilliant' (BBC N.I.) Drat came to a turning point. 2003 witnessed the birth of ???????Brittle Pale Blue?????? EP, crammed with songs any unsigned band would kill for. It highlights perfectly that Drat's songs are hard to forget - simple melodic guitar lines, looped lo-fi gems and delicate vocals, laced with dirty keyboards and sharp lyrics, comprising a mellow undercurrent as well as having teeth: not unlike a crocodile on morphine. Since moving from Ireland, they have been picked up by alternative radio and internet sites in the UK (most notably Xfm and DrownedinSound), Europe and the US.
