The Holy Loner & the Crystal Drifter


  • $ 500

The music of Dragstrip has been described variously as “New Zealand horror stories” and “beat-poetry”. Dragstrip himself says, “I enjoy creating images that are at once familiar and discomforting”. This can be seen in the song ‘the Eugenicist’ in which Dragstrip juxtaposes a young couple riding their bicycles through the Christchurch springtime with a miscarriage and a misanthrope. Dragstrip released his debut ep, "the Holy Loner and the Crystal Drifter", in March. He say's of the record that it is "5 slices of the best 'Hoodoo Folk' this side of anywhere". Of the dense, multi-layered production he say's "If I knew when I started the thing what I know now, I don't think I would have been quite so ambitious, that said though, I wouldn't go back and change a thing".
