Drop Out Venus, it is fair to say, are a pretty intense band. Good, we like intensity and Drop Out Venus just happen to be one of the best bands we have heard in forever.
Creating a clattering, death-rattle of a noise the Deptford trio (who originally hail from Bulgaria) have already won over critics and fans alike with a series of emotionally bare performances and demos.
The band put new song 'I Kill Foxes' online this morning with singer Iva explaining the meaning behind the song
“This is the saddest song I've ever written and I borderline hate it. It started off as a joke. King HeadSwim was for a while obsessed with Bill Callahan's I Break Horses, which is a pretty terrifying song about one man's behaviour towards women. He used to play it to us a lot, and for his birthday I wanted to write him my own version of that song in which the roles of man and woman were reversed. The problem was that it stopped being a joke in the first five minutes of improvising the words and melody and it felt like the song kind of turned on me and became confrontational as opposed to in any way entertaining..”
Like we said, they're kind of intense.
