Hailing from the east of Scotland, Dropkick have drawn on influences such as Wilco, Teenage Fanclub and The Jayhawks to produce their own blend of harmony-driven power-pop. The Scenic Route is Dropkick's most accomplished, coherent and fully realised collection of songs to date. The record showcases the timeless, jangly-pop simplicity of their music and the ear for melody and harmony that has helped Dropkick's music appeal to a growing cohort of music lovers around the world. Their 16th album, The Scenic Route concerns itself lyrically with the passing of time: relationships with people, places and music - some expired and some constant. The album was recorded in Dropkick's rehearsal space in Inch House, Edinburgh between May and July 2019. Recorded mainly live, with minimal overdubs, this is the sound of the band enjoying playing together, trusting their instincts and delivering their best ever set of songs. Recent praise: "Yet another near-flawless collection." RnR Magazine "This is country-pop at its finest...arguably their most innovative and well-crafted album yet." Maverick Magazine "Those who have yet to latch onto them are surely missing something special... Indie, powerpop, accomplished harmonies, tendencies. What's not to love?" The Herald newspaper "There's a controlled exuberance to these songs, a maturity; they are masters of their craft, each song works, the components fitting seamlessly, the sound a joyous machinery humming in harmony? A career high." Americana UK "A guarantee of instant melodic fulfilment? Dropkick triumph in giving new edge to familiar themes." R2 Rock n Reel Magazine "Old friends return in top form? a great record that won't disappoint." Ruta 66 Magazine
