Drones debut first single in two years

27 Oct, 2020

It’s been a while, but Drones are finally following up their conceptual 2018 album, Exiled, with a new single. Accompanying ‘Josephine’ is a claymation video that gets a little weird, but has been beautifully crafted by animator, William Davies. The song is a whilrwind, personal journey into vocalist Lois McDougall’s past relationship with alcohol.

“Growing up in Britain with its normalised binge-drinking culture, I never thought much about the fact I was relying on alcohol to feel relaxed and to have fun,” she says. “It wasn’t until recently that I was forced to tear myself away from it and realised how badly alcohol had been affecting me and my relationships. I wasn’t in control and was abusing myself with alcohol to try and suppress my depression. People started referring to the intoxicated me as ‘Josephine’. At first this was funny. Josephine was a clown. But there’s nothing funny about self-abuse. This song is about me realising that. Alcohol can be great, but if you don’t feel like you can say no to it, it’s time for a change.”
