About this event

Originally written in 2020, Headstraight is a song that is years in the making. Beginning in the spur of the moment, an early acoustic version of the track would be released as a B-side to the band’s breakthrough single ‘Mossbawn’. Following countless rewrites of the pop-infused indie anthem, The Drive. teamed up with Drogheda-based producer & mix engineer Daniel De Burca (Post-Party, Paddy Keyes) in refining and creating the final version of the track.

When asked about the track, the band’s frontman Eoin Murphy stated that Headstraight is ‘a song about growing up, about wanting to find yourself in a stable position in young adult life.’

Headstraight delivers a perfect guitar-driven balance of the unique sound that The Drive. have developed to date and an irresistible radio-ready hook amidst melancholic yet wishful lyricism.

‘All you do is write sad songs in your spare time. Why don’t I go and get a life?’

‘All you want is nothing more, you’ve got to get your head straight. All you want is all I have, you’ve got to get your head straight.’

Headstraight is out now on Egg Twelve Records.

About The Drive.

Initially formed in 2018 over a mutual love for Mancunian indie legends such as The Smiths and The Stone Roses, Cork-based outfit The Drive. now consists of Eoin Murphy (guitar/vocals), Alannah Hynes (bass/vocals), and Alex Redmond Galligan (drums).

A plethora of standalone singles, a debut EP, and countless shows on the Irish and UK touring circuit, The Drive. have undeniably developed the deserved status as one of the most promising young bands Ireland has to offer.
