Drift biography
DRIFT are a young quartet from Bergenfield, New Jersey. The information about the band is almost equal to zero: Dave is playing guitar and doing backing voices, Jack is singing, playing keyboards and guitar, Sean is on bass and Kenny on drums. So much for the biography.

However, it's worth saying a thing or two about their actual music because it will please quite a number of progressive rock fans. They're preforming music with clear King Crimson overtones, with punk rock edge. Of course, there are a few more ingredients that could fit both sides of equation, such are nods towards psychedelic rock and experimental burst. Keyboard sounds are both complementing and accenting their raw energy. They're offering the album called 'Driftsongs' as purchasable download on CDbaby since 2009.

3 stars Aptly named US outfit Drift has made themselves a rather intriguing yet frustrating initial effort with Driftsongs.

From the symphonic opening of the album to the Rush-meets-Killing Joke antics of Overlook, this is a band that, indeed, drift. Not letting themselves get tied down to any specific stylistic expression or particular sound. An approach which I applaud. And these guys are pretty decent composers as well, if not for one particular aspect of their performance this is a disc that would have hit my top 40 list of 2009.

While the music is sophisticated and rather refined, the vocals appear to be the main drawback for this band. Especially in the symphonic and mellow numbers the lead vocals grate - reminding me a bit of Kurt Cobain with perhaps a few Steve Hogarth dimensions added to it's expression. With a general tendency to be slightly out of tune, and somewhat naivistic in performance.

If you aren't very particular about vocals this is a fine album to add to your collection, especially if a diverse collection of art and symphonic rock songs sounds like a good thing to you.

Thanks to clarke2001 for the artist addition.
