The Rain” the new 1980's inspired single by North-East duo Drive sees the band struggling to find themselves on the late night streets of a nowhere town. Set against driving synths, guitars that shimmer with delight and echoing pianos, this New Romantic sound blends together perfectly to give a soundtrack reminiscent of a coming-of-age John Hughes movie.


“The Rain” was released via Soul Kitchen Recordings earlier this month and the track was mixed by Calum Malcolm of The Blue Nile and Prefab Sprout. With the track drawing on influences such as The 1975 and The Blue Nile, Drive are set for an influx of more fans such is the high standard of craftmanship on display.


The North-East Indie duo have released “The Rain” coming off the back of successful  Spotify streams exceeding 100,000 and have gained backing from BBC Introducing and featured on an Amazing Radio live session.
