Drenge’s brand of raucous, nihilistic, grungy garage punk is so thrilling, it’s hard to believe it’s the product of just two people: brothers Rory and Eoin Loveless.
The duo’s eponymous debut opens at blistering speed, and on tracks like ‘I Wanna Break You In Half’, Drenge let loose in a way that a band like The Vaccines can only dream of.
The thrashing energy does relent somewhat towards the end, yet this remains an impressive introductory manifesto.
