I was searching for something great to write about Low Dérive but, instead of filling papers and papers with enthusiastic and passionate words, I’m staring at my computer monitor with a totally empty mind. I was wondering: why I find so difficult to write about a band I know so well and I care about so much? The answer is simple and clear. I’m way too close to Low Dérive: one of them was my flatmate, I followed them to Fest 13 in 2014 and seeing their Fest show was a blast, a very superintense moment for me.
That’s why, in the beginning, i didn’t find the right words to talk about Low Dérive: there’s any distance beetween me and them.
I might be biased at your eyes, but I assure you that Low Dérive are a great band. Supercool to see live, with their wooo-oooo singalongs, with their confidence on stage and, of course, their smiles: you can perceive they are enjoying themselves by playing their songs.
Where I got this t-shirt
As I said before, I’m close to Low Dérive but I got this t-shirt very far from home: I was in Gainesville for Fest 13. I was feeling super enthusiastic after their show at Loosey’s, my mind was full of punkrock and my body of margaritas. One of the best days of my life!
Well, I love many Low Dèrive song but I choose “The Elephant in the room, is dead” because it’s also a song with a cool video!
