Draw – Simple To Severe

Recently seen supporting Arthur Lee and Love on the Forever Changes tour, the debut album from Scotland’s Draw is all fuzzy guitars and histrionics from singer Brent Proctor recalling Catherine Wheel or, more recently, JJ72. The best tracks, such as “Silver Screen”, rock pleasingly enough. Their dreamier side, displayed on “A Chance To Disappear” and “Courage”, is less convincing, and it’s hard to escape the conclusion that the songs aren’t quite yet good enough to encompass their ambition. One to watch?but some way short of the finished article.
