Drop Out Venus - Death Is Screaming


Drop Out Venus have released the first single from their forthcoming Glitz EP (which follows on May 20th), the frankly bizarre "Death Is Screaming". From a band never content to sit on the fence, the track pushes the boundaries of multiple genres and styles in one crazily wonderful three minute track.

Drop Out Venus have firmly announced themselves on my radar with this weirdly incredible track. Drop Out Venus play The Great Escape next week with a show at London's Sebright Arms on May 22nd...
