'See What You Hear' - the 4th studio release from the Anglo-Argentine 4 piece and the first recordings undertaken by the new line-up.

The 6 track E.P was recorded at Gizzard Studios in Bow, East London. It was tracked live to analogue tape with minimal overdubs, giving an impeccably true representation of this new phase of The Draytones. The idea of this old-school recording project was one that Andy and Gabriel had wanted to realise for some time, and now you can finally hear it in all its authentic glory...

Conserving the eclectic flavours of previous work, 'See What You Hear' contains elements of all the bands' influences, bound together by a tight and highly polished instrumental unit.

'Sunflowers' is a garage-riff fuelled gem, followed by 'The Con Artist' which brings a bucket of a hard-edged Mersey beat. 'Time Will Bring You Down' carries an undeniable Mo-town feel led vocally by Andy Pickering, his first recorded Draytones work. 'Vacations' presents a stomping, Kinksian vibe while 'Tunnels' sees the band's up-tempo retro swagger in full swing. The album is concluding by 'Different Plan' - a rousing, anthemic departure in style for a band that's always looking to expand their sound...

This new E.P. finds a band at the peak of their live powers, rejuvenated by a fresh line up and new approach and gives a mouthwatering taste of what's to come...
