D RAIL is Hi Energy Sonic Music. It should be played loud and sung to with your feet 3 feet of the ground!
"A veteran of the local scene, DRAIL may be mysterious, but his affinity for the West Coast is clear.This is fist-in-the-air, Agent Orange-esque anthem punk with smarmy swagger and slashing guitars you don't hear enough of lately. "
Stuart Derdeyn, The Province.
“The unity of glam-induced punk'n'roll in the vein of Backyard Babies with shoegazing indie rock,`a la Goo-era Sonic Youth,seems like one of the most unlikely occurances,a horrific Frankenstein tampering of polar opposites,Somehow,DRAIL pull this off on The Circus in a way that makes them seem all the brighter for actually blending such disparate forces over the course of 11,mid-tempo songs lumbering along at an acceptable pace,churning out the aforementioned glam-esque,hooky riffs.But just as the band seem pegged in with the mascara-clad,leather pants-wearin' masses,they utilise a moderate dissonance and slacker-ish,strung-out vocal delivery that hits like a ton of bricks steamrolling in from left field.Drenching the ensuing salvo of open chords with heaps of reverb,it almost seems as if Thurston Moore was either producing or scratching at the door for admittance.After the initial jar wears off though,The Circus proves itself almost as interesting as it is bold.Lyrically,the band stick to tried and true elements:personal experiences yielding pseudo-insightful views of life and love.But with a few more kicks at the can,DRAIL may very well carve out an infrequently visited niche for themselves. “
Keith Carman, Exclaim magazine.
The glam thing ? I do not hear it. What others hear in my music is all good, as long as it is causing a reaction!
I grew up with Rock 'n' Roll , specifically Punk Rock, and I do not see myself leaving those roots. I have always found my taste in music to be about pure high energy and passion. That to me is what Rock is- True, Honest, Pure Sonic Sound.
That's D RAIL.
