Drew Davies has today released his new video for the single titled ‘The Bitter End’ from his upcoming album titled ‘Holloway Nights’, dropping in January. Signaling a whole new direction for Drew musically, ‘The Bitter End’ takes that harder edge and adds it to Drew’s signature retaining his core audience and expanding said audience drastically. This is a hard edges groove based monster with sharp teeth.
After that initial ‘holy shit’ moment, I had to compose myself for this first listen with a second, third, and so on. As memorable as it is monumental, ‘The Bitter End’ signifies a sweet beginning for Drew on many, many levels.

About Drew Davies & ‘The Bitter End’
Drew Davies is set to release his brand new single ‘The Bitter End’ on 17th November 2023; the track will be the third single from his highly anticipated studio album “Holloway Nights”, due for release in January 2024. The track has an alternative rock cinematic soundscape which combines modern influences like QOTSA and Ghost with nostalgic synthesizers that reference the work of synth legend John Carpenter and luminaries such as Kavinsky and Carpenter Brut. The song is Davies’ most visceral release to date, never relenting until its breathless climax as he delivers his lines with panache and guile. The Bitter End paints a picture with words, a reflection on the terminal state of a relationship. This plays out beautifully on the VHS crafted video that accompanies the single.
The track was mixed by Danny Woodward, Whitewood Recordings and mastered by Graeme Lynch, 209 Mastering – Circa Waves, Ladytron, AMS Neve, Marshall Records.
Drew Davies staunchly claims new territory as he prepares his sophomore solo album, Holloway Nights. He’s written many songs and he’s played some iconic shows. From London’ s Scala and legendary Underworld to Download Festival & the Brudenell Social. He’s also been fortunate enough to have his music played by BBC DJ’s such as Gary Crowley (BBC London), Bruce Dickinson (BBC 6), Jericho Keys (BBC Introducing) and the late great Janice Long (BBC Wales) amongst others. Now residing in the post industrial artistic hotbed of Glasgow, his latest work is his most expansive. Inspired by the world around him and the themes of love, loss and the human experience. Drew has created a sonic soundscape that can feel both ominous like a storm rolling over a city or comforting like the warm sun caressing the back of your neck. Listen to his music, Drew Davies has something to say.
