Belfast's Drew Makes Noise started as guitarist with indie/dance crossover act Ed Zealous who released their NI Music Prize nominated debut album “Wired” via Fierce Panda subsidiary Club Fandango in 2014.
Since disbandment, he’s been creating a vision in his home studio. Immersed in a world of synths, canned orchestras, guitar effects and late night psychedelic country walks, Drew’s been dreaming up a Psych-Pop-Prog-Rock world all of his own.
Insisting on a DIY aesthetic across the board, Drew released his 1st single “Satellite” in 2020. His DIY video, showing action man going on a comedy space trip was debuted in Clash Magazine, describing Drew as a “genuine DIY artist capable of churning out indie banger after indie banger.”
After having his first show cancelled by the pandemic, Drew spent the following period honing his craft, releasing singles, videos and, recording his debut album. Self-produced but mixed in LA by Math Bishop (Two Door / Twin Atlantic) Drew has widely embellished the kitchen sink approach of his 1st singles.
Single 1 from the album – Secret To Life which took a more subtle approach, evoking Sparklehorse, was lauded by Stephen McCartney of BBC Introducing. The head frying video was nominated for NI Music Prize video of the year.
His forthcoming album 'Let The Whole Tape Run' is set for releases 24/05/23
Three more singles, following Lemonade will be released in advance of the album launch in May 2023.
