The Draynes - Single Launch

Friday night saw the launch of The Draynes debut single at the Mash House, with support from some of Edinburgh's top up-and-coming bands.

On early doors, rock-pop band Miasma took to the stage. The band have been together since 2009 and their experience was obvious as they played a tight set of about half an hour. Miasma have another gig in Edinburgh on 15 May at Sneaky Pete's.

Weirdest band name of the night went to Geek Maggot Bingo, who brought a completely different sound to the stage. They got the crowd moving with some good old fashioned punk infused rock 'n' roll.

The room filled up for bluesy-rock quarter, The Cracklin' Void. I've now seen the band twice and they are definite crowd pleasers, a good shout to put them as main support. Their catchy tunes and enthusiasm had the crowd dancing and nicely warmed up for the headline act.

The night however, really did belong to The Draynes. A steady run of gigs over the past year has seen support for their garage punk/blues sound grow, and the duo get more confident with every show. This set the band up nicely for the launch of their debut single, 'Give Me Sympathy' which they saved for the last song of the night.
There will be no encore.
