Prey Drive release title track for upcoming Ep

6 May, 2021

With time quickly running out, Prey Drive are on the cusp of releasing their forthcoming EP, Neon God. Generous as they are, they’ve dropped the title track to tide us over. This track sees them a little more chaotic and is said to have been inspired by early Biffy Clyro and Fall of Troy.

Vocalist Bradley Smith says that ‘Neon God’ Is about trying to chase a glorified lifestyle. Losing faith in your current lifestyle, finding faith in going out, getting dressed up, drinking, taking drugs, making horrible decisions just to feel alive and break away from a mundane routine. It incorporates following a certain religion or way of thinking like a cult.” 

Guitarist Steve Larke-Mejia adds that ‘Neon God’ is his favourite on the upcoming 5-track EP of the same name. He says, “The original song was an idea we jammed shortly after finishing our debut album, and that song is now the basis of the middle 8. The other parts are based around the chords in the middle 8 and the original song, but now they’re far more aggressive and the tapping stuff is a part I’m really proud of.” He continues, “The drumbeat was an idea of mine after hearing a lot of reggaeton music via my Colombian wife and realising beats like that were all over pop music and so it could be fun to try it in one of our songs.”
