White Fence psych rock mastermind Tim Presley and Welsh singer-songwriter Cate Le Bon have forged an unlikely partnership with DRINKS. Though the two only linked up recently, they’re already prepping their debut album, Hermits On Holiday, which is due to drop this summer. Despite their shared efforts, a press release describes DRINKS “as solo project, not a collaboration. It has one mouth, one set of lungs, one mind and four legs.”
As a preview of their four-legged effort, DRINKS have shared the title track, a spry little number led by Le Bon’s soft, limber vocals. Later, a mix of barbed riffs stir up and tear into the song, like someone’s just spiked the punch with a barrel of rum. Listen in below.
Hermits on Holiday will hit shelves on August 21st via Birth Records/Heavenly Recordings. Le Bon’s last solo effort was 2013’s Mug Museum; meanwhile, Presley’s last White Fence record was last year’s For The Recently Found Innocent.
