Sean Leon has taken a break from other projects (such as work with New Lake and producing “Misfits”, the debut release from former Tommy Drums singer Sam Jones aka “dreadfulllyouth”) to release his own track “Breathe” under the name “Drug Culture”.
It’s a lo-fi affair, steeped in scuzziness, but which successfully captures the grunginess of early Nirvana tracks. We can expect to hear more of its shoegaze grunge punk vibe later in the year as work on a first EP is completed. And no doubt a few live dates with a full band too. Something to relish.
