D_DRIVE have released their new single Wings taken from their upcoming album Dynamotive.
The track was inspired by guitarist Yuki’s budgies, “I keep two budgies that are named ‘Lemon’ and ‘Rum’. This song is for them. When we were writing / recording the song we tried to personify the budgies in a musical form. Toshi, our bassist studied videos of budgies and tried to emulate their cries in his playing style. While Chiiko, our drummer tried to represent the flapping of their wings using unusual playing styles. I contributed in the fact that I wanted a 16th note guitar strumming initially before we moved into our trademark Driving Rock style. I think that we nailed it and I hope that I made ‘Lemon’ and ‘Rum’ proud!”
