Rolling and roaring from Madrid since 2015, Angry Saints are an unusual alliance, a (wild) bunch of self-taught noise veterans from Australia, England and Spain joining forces to create this powerful but unpredictable, amazing first record.
Nothing New In The Human Zoo delivers a master class of brain-fuelled alternative rock, kraut detours, razor blade punk, power pop hooks, Aussie high-energy splendour and occasional dives into swampland territory.
Raging and ranging from visceral to subtle, Angry Saints do know how to shout about the essential – love, drugs, cars, beer & fear – and how to travel from the desert to the sea and then, eventually, to the realm of nightmares.
They are a cinematic musical trip. They are the technological trap seen from an Antonioni point of view. They are Tennessee Williams riding a hot rod. They are J.G. Ballard escaping the prison camp to play a gig in your basement. A bloody good one. They are life regurgitating itself and your apocalypse of choice. They are one hell of a rock ‘n’ roll band.

A band which defies categorization under the wide Indie-Alternative umbrella, Driive is more than the sum of its parts.
Bringing together all sorts of influences, from the raw direct sound of The Rakes and The Strokes to the nuanced and polished offerings of Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr., Driive's true nature finally shines through in their dancey boisterous roaring soundscapes.
‘’ As of this morning the streets are practically empty in Madrid with all parks and the majority of commercial establishments having been shut down by our government.
We must say that although this situation has also taken its toll on the music community with concerts cancelled and venues closed, we are doing everything we can to keep music alive through online festivals and performances...
But most importantly, that everything pales in the face of the critical public health issue that confronts us and our thoughts and prayers go to all those affected by the coronavirus and our health care workers.
Let's hope we can leave all this behind as soon as possible and with as few victims as possible.’’
