Drift release a new single ‘Lifeline’.

The new track from the Paisley outfit follows their most recent release, 2019’s ‘Edge of Love‘ remixed by The Vegan Leather, from June.

After releasing a string of singles throughout 2018 and 2019, the duo – songwriter Linzi Clark and producer Andrew Quinn – have played a succession of shows, notably at King Tut’s New Year’s Revolution, Sofar Sounds, a hometown headline slot at The Bungalow in Paisley, and at Edinburgh International Magazine Festival.

Clark said of the new track: “I wanted to explore the secrecy and vulnerability in really letting go. That authentic moment we all get at times when you step outside of your own body and have a light bulb moment, letting go of ego and your own ideas of yourself and how you’re seen to others.

“It’s sensual but with an underlying edge of vulnerability. It’s about treading the line between lust and love and not wanting to commit in fear of losing that spark. Wanting to delve into the moment without the aftermath of doubt and fear and only wanting to show a certain side of you, without anything too real. Eventually confronting that head on, being challenged to ask yourself why.”

Quinn added: “’Lifeline’ started off with the keyboard stabs from the chorus then I built the song up from there. I had all the components, melodic bass part and some nice sounding textures but the song still wasn’t sounding great. After experimenting in the studio a bit with vocals and guitar we decided to go with a more prominent guitar sound and strong vocals which really tied the song together and has become a feature of our sound as a whole.”
