The Drink - The Drink
The Drink are comprised of Ailie Ormston, who works in a kitchen and Ω, one half of the partnership Edinburgh Leisure. The Drink’s vision of the world is portrayed through “rudimentary bass and de(con)structive guitar” (Neil Cooper). With hacked drum machines and preprogrammed keyboards, they create compositions that complement their lyrical content, itself demonstrating a harsh and contemptuous reality. The album presents a series of theatrically characterised scenarios; universal summaries of the day-to-day; habitual and excessive; promising and disparaging.
Recorded during a six-month period and originally released solely online, the album itself addresses new modes of working and an interest in musical versatility. Being unrehearsed, unknowing and capable of compromise are key to the The Drink ethos, with an emphasis on changing the form of each song to suit different performative environments. Authorship and individualism are discouraged; preciousness of ownership is challenged. 85% honest, 15% misquoted; 100% sincere. You will find them in the pub. Drink the dark, depressive drink.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
