Drones Share Video For New Single Rorschach

Friday, 24 November 2017 Written by Laura Johnson

Drones have shared a video for their new single, Rorschach.

The track will feature on their forthcoming LP, 'Exiled', which is due out on March 9 through Lockjaw Records. Speaking about it, vocalist Lois McDougall said:

“[Rorschach] was written as a slap in the face to those of us who ‘suffer’ from so-called 'first world problems'. We have freedoms that others spend their lives fighting for, and it's all too easy to forget that we live in a relatively protected and safe environment. The song is a simplistic attempt to adjust perspectives and the way people in our society perceive their every-day issues. We are the lucky ones, and to close our eyes to the suffering of refugees fleeing war or oppression is nothing less than selfish and savage. You have no more right to the freedoms which you have been handed than anyone else does.”

Discussing the album, McDougall continued:

"Exiled is a collection of songs that we began writing after being struck by the misery of the European refugee crisis. Some of the songs are written from the perspectives of fictional characters of those impacted by the crisis, and others of those who prefer to distance themselves from it. Millions of people are suffering every day and it's a subject that should be kept at the forefront of all of our minds. Music is a great platform for personal connection. We've taken a subject that can so easily be viewed as a distant-seeming 'world-issue', and tried to make it more personal. In doing so, we hope that people may feel more compassion for the victims, and that those suffering may find an ounce of comfort in these songs. Exiled is dedicated to those fleeing any war-torn country."

The London-based band will play a few more shows before the year is out. Head here for details.
