Album: The Ways We Separate
"The bass line for 'Drive' existed as a sketch I wrote back in 2011. We used this as the starting point when we eventually built the song up from the original demo, adding new percussion, processed guitar and a working vocal melody," Beacon's Thomas Mullarney tells Rolling Stone. "It has gone through a lot of iterations, and after particularly frustrating couple days looked like it wasn't going to make the cut for this record. When we were able to work through its issues 'Drive' became one of our favorite moments on the record."
