A Sydney-based band featuring members from across the globe (Spain, UK and Australia), Drawing Arrows embrace all aspects and decades of rock & roll.
Call it a love letter to rock as they merge Aussie rock with US grunge, add hints of flamenco guitar before sprinkling Britpop and amped-up punk just before serving it red-hot to your ears.
With influences ranging from Nothing But Thieves, Them Crooked Vultures, and Queens Of The Stone Age, to Jack White and Cream, Drawing Arrows have recently released their debut EP, the three-song 'Rojo'.
"The 'Rojo' EP will take you on a journey of love sickness, sly mermaids and general mischief," the band says. "'No Remedy' hints at the rock sound that is impossible to sit still too.
'Siren' combines a dark edge with a very cool rhythm. And 'The Genius' ramps up the tempo to go out with a bang."
Now the band have teamed with director David Johns – you know him, he did that Planet Earth Bin Chicken mockumentary video – to create a music video for 'No Remedy'.
The final result feels like a call back to the video clips of the '90s, with that fisheye lens, confined space and over-saturation in the grading.
scenestr is stoked to premiere the 'No Remedy' music video today. Enjoy.
"After the first listen to 'No Remedy'," Johns says, "a creative path seemed obvious.
"Right in the middle of COVID lockdown in Sydney, the idea of playing with the medical themes in 'No Remedy' fitted so well.
"We had to have a really small crew on the shoot. One camera operator and assist and that was it.
"The guys in the band actually helped build the set in a warehouse in Marrickville. Staying safe and wearing masks and using hand sanitiser seemed like part of the whole setup."
