Hustle & Drone Announce New Album 'What An Uproar' Photo Hustle & Drone Announce New Album 'What An Uproar'

This October Portland-based band Hustle And Drone will release their new album What An Uproar. Today, the band released the first single 'Stranger' from the forthcoming release. The track premiered at PopMatters and can also be shared at Spotify. About the song, PopMatters says, 'With crystal-clear lyrics, an infectious chorus and production that recalls the Top 40 glory of Howard Jones, Thomas Dolby, and others of their kind, 'Stranger' brings together progressive music with pop in a way that's insulting neither to the heart nor the intellect. We should be more than lucky to have Hustle and Drone around for years to come, making these sophisticated and alluring sounds.'Hustle And Drone's Ryan Neighbors adds, ''Stranger' is the product if toying around with and reversing some mellotron sounds and loops. The big influence on the drums was going for an 80's Phil Collins vibe. The lyrical content eludes to filling your voids with so much noise and busyness. Avoiding the issues that are painful for you until you eventually start to become somebody else. It gets you to a place that you no longer recognize who you are anymore.  You're more or less sharing your body and headspace with this other personality that is starting to take over.'
