Drew Davies is scheduled to release his latest single, The Bitter End, on November 17. The single is the third one from his studio album Holloway Nights, which is set to release January 2024.
Drew is an alt-rock soloist based in London. He’s made a name for himself as his work continues to grow in popularity and has played at shows such as London’s Scala, Underworld, Download Festival and the Brudenell Social.
His latest work is more expansive than ever as Drew explores themes of love, loss, and human experience. Each song he crafts tells a particular story.
Talking about The Bitter End, Drew said: “The creation of The Bitter End marked the death knell of a tumultuous affair. During my recovery I binged on a diet of early 80’s horror movies, this inspired me to combine a wall of synthesizers with a wall of distortion as a unique form of self-help.
“Whilst The Bitter End doesn’t mark my permanent return to the Headbangers Ball it shows I kept the tuxedo in my closet.”
The Bitter End review
The Bitter End speaks of the experience of the end of a relationship. Containing alt-rock and synth styles, this piece was inspired by the likes of QOTSA and John Carpenter.
Greeting us at the start of this track is a dark, heavy, and physical presence of drums and guitar. Drew’s rumbling vocals turn powerful as he injects them with power leading to the chorus.
His vocals remind me of a mix between Muse and Sundara Karma, with a 2019 summer feel.
The angst in his words compliment the chosen instruments as he sings about the pain and love of a relationship ending.
The electric guitar and drums reach a powerful summit at the end of the track. It is one that fans will go crazy for, the kind you don’t want to stop dancing to.
The Bitter End will be available to stream on November 17. Keep up with Drew’s content here.
