Drenge recently performed a cover of Arcade Fire‘s ‘Ready To Start‘ during their appearance on BBC Radio 1 with Zane Lowe.
While maintaining the drive of the original track, they also managed to manipulate the indie aesthetic and create a much more grunge based version.
Having recently released their debut LP last month to widespread critical acclaim, the Derbyshire siblings, Rory and Eoin Loveless, are rapidly asserting themselves as one of Britain’s most exciting acts.
Additionally Drenge have recently embarked on their headline UK tour. Beginning on September 20 at Bunters, Truro, free of charge, and planning to finish off on October 16 at Sugarmill, Stoke.
