The Family Way

about meReverse Family step forward to announce themselves with a sound which trespasses and festers in the psyche. The difference is that this is set to be the most welcome invasion of ears as it crawls with relish into the imagination. Reverse Family is a lo-fi exploration into an experimental DIY web of sounds and flavours which is hard to pin down but certainly embraces everything from post punk and noise pop to indie and old school punk. "Bit of Pere Ubu vibe, funkier, nice biscuit tin drum sound & minimalist approach recalling a lot of post punk with an eery reverb drenched vocal, David Thomas meets Barney Sumner glam punk!"

The song itself reminds me, of all things, of Summer Nights from Grease. From America’s Say Hi and Advance Base, to homegrown acts like Half Man Half Biscuit, Swell Maps, the Lovely Eggs etc, I seem to have accumulated quite a lot of naive, quirky stuff over the years. esrever family slot really nicely into all of that. Their backlist through the link is astonishing. Dozens and dozens of songs. It’s like[…]

Starting the following October, the plan with 365 was to release 52 EPs as one a week for a whole year, each of their songs representing a single day in the inspiring life of its creator. Reverse Family is the solo project of Dermot Illogical, though you may know him as Andreas Vanderbraindrain, the frontman of British outfit The Tuesday Club. With its brainchild embracing the various talents of others, Reverse Family first grabbed keen attention with debut album My Songs About Life Mid Crisis in 2016. In so many[…]
