Drive There Now are a 4-piece Indie Rock band from Manchester, UK. They fuse Alternative Rock and Indie to create upbeat and uplifting songs. Drive there now started in the summer of '09 as an acoustic two peice, with just Lee and Anthony. They decided that the songs they were writing though needed more... So they started looking for band members to fill in the gaps. At this time two of their close friends, Ben & Oliver's band split up leaving them bandless. This unfortunate event was great for DTN because they needed a bass player and a drummer.

Lazy grooves and thick harmonised trumpet chords; sleazy deep beat brass and crushed up metallic drumbeats. Spaceheads mix the raw emotional sound of breath with the banging of wood on skin, and push it through the blips, crackle and distortion of pixelated electronic noise.
