OFFSHORE DRILLS released his debut "RED BLUES " EP on May 2016. The band then fully focused on the recordings a debut album ‘’BREATH’’ that was out on June 2018. This reccord is avaible on 12” vinyl limitied edition. On this album, the band further develops its sound while keeping its signature vibe : field reccordings, heavy bass lines, echoing guitars, elegant saxophones and a lot of delays and dark atmospheres...
BREATH. is kind of a genre breaking piece, standing between soft psych-rock, modern jazz, trip-hop and dub vibrations. This 9 songs reccord contains powerfull and evocative themes that allow it’s listeners to freely aknoledge he story beside each track.
Listening to Offshore Drills is like entering a new world of unmapped soundscapes an this debut album is simply a mindblowing journey through experimentation....
The band is currently focused on the reccording for his next 2 releases and looking further to 2019-2020. See you soon then !
