‘Drome’ by Duir! | Album premiere | “A topsy-turvy journey through Lincolnshire”

Exclusive album premiere of ‘Drome’ by Duir! Following similar themes to its sprawling predecessor, ‘Sodden Dogs and Blind, Winged Horses’ (2019) and experimental debut, ‘The Stout Guardian of the Door’ (2007), the new album is a tight, compact blast of glam-folk with a post-punk attitude.

‘Drome’ reveals a topsy-turvy journey through Lincolnshire tradition, told through spoken word and song and where fact and fantasy become embroiled in time-shifting theatre. The album also features the track, ‘By Hook or by Crook’ – a collaboration with Edgar Broughton.

Put aside the disquiet of the present and allow yourself to be briefly distracted and indulge with them on a journey through a timeless landscape where fact and fantasy become intrinsically linked. Through their endeavours Dur! have, in effect, sought to create their own, timeless ‘Drome’.

There’s also an accompanying video of the title track:
