KEEF are back after their successful previous singles ’Satellite’ and ’Day In Day Out’, the band have made a name for themselves for their psychedelic indie rock sound, but this track ‘Beat of a drum’ is a bit gritter than the previous singles, like the small industrial town up in the northwest of England where the lads are from. This song has a machine like roughness to its tones.
When you call your track ‘Beat of a Drum’ you must make sure the drumming is worthy of the record, and thankfully the drum beat was the foundation of this song and the lyrics become the heartbeat that looped around time and time again to make an imprint on your mind.
KEEF can be proud of the way the lyrics of this song shine a spotlight on their working class roots and identity, momentum is slowly built throughout the track with dirty distorted heavy guitar riffs. You can only feel with the previous singles added with this impressive track that the next step up in level for KEEF is to develop a EP.
