GIL DE RAY returns with the follow up to 2016’s Rough Trade Album of the week “A Riot Of Sound”.
“In The Shadow Of The Drone” soundtracks the intervening years and is a statement on the fractious divisions in a post-Brexit apocalypse.
Musically, it reverberates with groovy punk funk voodoo energy. A bold development from the blistering garage-punk style of its predecessor.
Recorded at his home studio in South London, Gil originally from Glasgow, hooked up with Desert Ships Mikey Buckley to deliver a record with a swaggering self-assuredness.
THIS PACK INCLUDES A FULL COLOUR 20 PAGE BOOK OF LYRICS + PROPAGANDA ARTWORK (NOT PICTURED) ALL BY GIL.
COMES WITH FREE DOWNLOAD CODE VIA https://gilderay.bandcamp.com/
