Drones Club’s starting point is the belief that humans are numbed and alienated by modern structures of control. Specific social movements have been supplanted by a global cultural feedback loop. ‘We have become drones, hovering, observant, unable to participate’. Their hardly-immodest ambition is to act as ‘a pan-social solution to the 21st century problem’, and to demand ‘the reconnection of society through sound and light’.
Inspired by unorthodox creative collectives like The KLF or Spiritualized, debut double-A-sided single ‘Soul of A Spaceman / Telescope Lover’ will see a release on PMR, in collaboration with South-London singer Tallullah. In contrast to the militant, technoid rumble of early material, the record explores themes of heartache, loneliness and ultimately female empowerment through the filter of space-disco. Having only formed in spring 2015, Drones Club have played a handful of raw, rapturous shows in unusual locations – including a guerrilla storming of London Fashion Week – and supported fellow noise-enthusiasts HEALTH. If the songs continue to match the strength of their manifesto – and we are all drones – now may well be time to join the club.
