SINGLE REVIEW: Return To The Drake’s Nest – BRIDGES

London’s very own rising rock quintet, BRIDGES, are back for the third time already this year, with latest single: ‘Return To The Drake’s Nest‘.

Released just a day before they played a slot at The Bimble Inn at Glastonbury, ‘Return To The Drake’s Nest‘ presents a truly anthemic guitar-lead sound.


Frontman Ethan Proctor’s vocals are warm and inviting, his lyrics poetically full of emotion and nothing less than endearing from start to finish.

The track intertwines jangling guitar hooks with pulsating drums and soaring harmonies – a combination that truly shows off the band’s undeniable refined sound.

Imagine what the lovechild of Frightened Rabbit and The Gaslight Anthem would sound like, add in a hint of The National and you’ve got BRIDGES.

The band have built up a pretty loyal following over the years, performing at numerous festivals from Leeds to Isle Of Wight, as well as supporting the likes of We Were Promised Jetpacks and Airways.
