Bio

DRAINING are an alternative band from Adelaide, Australia. Drawing influences from genres such as shoegaze, dream pop & post-punk, the band has been refining and experimenting with their sound. Their debut album ‘don’t you want to feel something different?’ reflects their 3 year-long progression. By mixing in dreamy, and dark elements they have created a brooding sound of their own, with a hint of punk aggression and wall of fuzz to create an album full of angst, anger, loss, anxiety & sorrow.

Thanks to inspiration from Death Bells, Nothing, Whirr, and Turnover, the band formed in 2017 and have released one self titled EP, two singles, and now their debut album. DRAINING have already toured through Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and wish to push further, achieve more and reach new audiences.

With a hefty amount of shows under their belt, they have played alongside bands such as Death Bells (US), Blush Response, Lowtide (Melb), Half/Cut (Melb), Shady Nasty (Syd), Ultra Material (Bris), Paradise Club, Terra Pines (Bris), Towns, and Colourblind.

why wouldn't you want to feel something different, when it’s all you’ve been feeling?

What's a dream without a little bit of a dark turn every now and then? Draining mixing their dream pop with some doom for good measure.
