“Like the Snow We Fall” is the latest single from October Drift. It’s taken from their upcoming EP “Naked”, which follows the release of their debut album “Forever Whatever” earlier this year.
I love this new single; it’s an evocative, haunting track.
October Drift return with their new acoustic EP, Naked, following the success of their debut album Forever Whatever … With a solid foundation built over years of touring and writing, the album affirmed the band’s place as an important new presence, with their heavy, pop-inflected rock delivering a rejuvenating injection of fresh blood to the genre. The album was met with widespread critical acclaim on release, garnering praise from the likes of CLASH, Kerrang! Louder Than War and many more.
Stripping away the immersive wall of distorted guitars and powerful instrumentation prevalent throughout the album, the new EP showcases the band’s diversity as musicians, shining a light on frontman Kiran Roy’s insightful lyricism and evocative vocals, and painting the tracks in a deeply sensitive light.
Having already thrilled audiences at festivals including Glastonbury’s John Peel Stage, Reading & Leeds and The Great Escape, as well as on a major European tour with Editors and a slot at Liverpool’s Sound City, the album and brand new EP together condense years of relentless touring and expertly crafted performance into showcases of flawless songwriting; statements of intent from a band more than ready to cement their place as future icons.

The band recently posted on their Facebook page:
‘Hugely excited to announce that our new acoustic EP “Naked” will be released to the world on November 6th via Physical Education Recordings! Following on from how well received the track “Naked” was on our debut album, we felt this would be a good opportunity to explore the more stripped back side of our songwriting and shine a light on some tracks which might not work on a conventional OD release.’
