DROP D TALKS TO… Novatines (UK)

April 3, 2019

In this 2019 series of DROP D TALKS TO... interviews, Drop D has a chat to Jamie Beale (Lead Vocals/Guitar) & Tom Cory (Vocal/Lead Guitar) of NOVATINES who are based in Bath in the UK.

Novatines are a 4 piece Alternate Rock band who formed in the winter of 2017. The band immediately made a name for themselves on the UK circuit with their catchy, anthemic, high-octane rock songs. Novatines have toured extensively up and down the country on both headline and support tours, playing alongside the likes of Alabama 3, Arcane Roots, Von Hertzen Brothers, and Sweet.

In this episode, Drop D talks to the guys about how the band began, their musical influences, their connection with Andy Scott & the band Sweet & the upcoming debut album release!

DROP D TALKS TO… The Gemini Effect (New Zealand)

DROP D TALKS TO… The Gemini Effect (New Zealand)

March 27, 2019

In this 2019 series of DROP D TALKS TO... interviews, Drop D has a chat to Rob Sharp (Guitar/vocals) - the brains behind THE GEMINI EFFECT who are based in New Zealand.

THE GEMINI EFFECT are a 3 piece alternative rock band from Auckland, New Zealand. Mix in rockybluesypunkygrungeyalt noise, add intensity and listen through a psychedelic filter.
The songs are cherry picked from Rob Sharp’s brain, who plays old guitars and sings. The low frequencies are handled by Chris, the mild mannered Clark Kent of the band, and 2nd generation bass player. Kayne keeps the juggernaut on track and has been known to hit the drums very hard.

In this episode, DROP D talks to Rob about how the band started, their upcoming 2nd album release BAD ALIEN (which is due out in June) & in an exclusive, we hear a heart felt acoustic rendition of the song GUNS which is dedicated to the victims & families of the tragic Christchurch Mosque Shootings in New Zealand very recently. RIP.
