“You know when you hear a band for the first time and you immediately think, Wow! Yeah! Fuck, I like this! - well, that was pretty much the case with Casual Drag.” - Little Indie Blogs
Snarling vocals over feral guitar riffs, backed by pounding drums and bass – Scottish garage punk three-piece Casual Drag have earned a reputation as a must-see live band through a series of packed and frenetic shows across their homeland.
Their standout brand of clattering garage-rock has led to support slots with Joe Talbot of IDLES, Lice, Flat Worms, Gaygirl, MEMES and Press Club.
Singles 'Bleach Head' and 'Johnny' were championed by BBC Introducing, BBC6 Music's Tom Robinson, and Amazing Radio's Jim Gellatly.
A first festival slot this summer followed, opening for Warmduscher at this year’s Hidden Door arts festival in Edinburgh
Having played to packed and feverish crowds across Scotland – the Glasgow band will take their live show to the rest of the UK in 2023 as their debut EP is released.
“Their guitars buzz and fizz and glide in all the right places and they sing with dedication and careless abandon, what’s not to like?” -
Tom Robinson, BBC6 Music
“The garage-rock trio's single Johnny is a ferociously fascinating fuzzbomb of a post-punk rant which Idles would be proud of."
The Herald Scotland
“Casual Drag make anthems, if you’re looking for a hard-hitting Garage band to blow your mind, then look no further.”
