The Greenock based indie quartet have recently dropped their debut single accompanied by a release gig at The Gamble Halls.
Displaying influence from UK outfits such as The Libertines and fellow Scottish musicians, The Snuts, “The Dregs” captures the essence of the indie sing along sub-genre with the combination of chunky rhythmic chord progressions and twangy lead licks. Solidifying drum and bass work provide a steady concrete for the track bringing it together.
The following night of the release, Strange Dimensions headlined a free show at The Gamble Halls, Gourock, sharing the stage with support in the form of acoustic acts Rhys Heaven and Ryan Phillips. The large venue was home to a great turnout and proved a positive reaction to thew new single, having only been released the previous day.
“Now these old legs don’t move just how they used to, you drink the dregs, you know you shouldn’t but you choose to”.
Despite having only formed a month before lockdown hit, the band have already shared the stage with polished acts such as Spyres, Black Dove and St Clements proving there is much more to come from the young outfit. The indie rockers have expressed their desire to one day share the stage with bands whose gigs they have attended together, including DMA’s, The Snuts and Inhaler.
Frontman Paul Leslie commented on the origin of the song, “The track was quickly put together before we supported Spyres at a virtual gig back in May and is now our first single. We hope everyone enjoys it”.
