The Dreggs grew up in the sunshine with the ocean at their feet. They’re trademark brand of indie-folk is inspired by just that and with a soundscape care of two acoustic guitars, a foot-stomp, and a driving beat, it’s any wonder it takes you to the beach with each listen.

Paddy Macrae and Zane Harris have today released new single ‘Call Me Home’, a sunny emotive bop ready to help you welcome the weekend.

The duo said of the track:

“As a musician, it’s really easy to fall into the trap of making something that should be fun and simple, so complex. ‘Call Me Home’ is simply put a happy and energetic track that should be enjoyed lightly. Whether you’re road-tripping down the coastline, thinking about your lover, or just wanting to dance around the house, we feel ‘Call Me Home’ is the perfect theme.”

To celebrate the release of ‘Call Me Home’, we asked The Dreggs a few questions to help you get to know them better. Check out our chat with Paddy and Zane below to find out how their name came about, their hometown on the Sunshine Coast, and how most of their songs are about “Paddy’s exes and running away from home.”

How did your artist name come about?
Well we were recording a video of us playing a song to promote an upcoming show on our socials. Zane said, “let’s see what these Dreggs have done” after finishing as a joke but we kind of laughed but Paddy thought it was a fantastic name, so here we are haha.

How would you describe your music to your grandma?
Probably just say we’re a heavier Bob Dylan on way less drugs.

Call Me Home Lyrics

Oh my love, stand by the old oak tree
Where you’ll find me
Oh my love, she sings soft and sweet for me
Like a warm breeze

All these things I’d rather do with you by my side

And I’m planning all these ways
Just to find my way back home
To you I wish you’d stay
So darling won’t you call me

Seeing all these signs
So darling won’t you call me home
Darling won’t you call me home

Oh my love, stand by the old oak tree
Will you be there?
Oh my love, won’t you sing again for me,
Like sweet honey?

All these things I’d rather do with you by my side

And I’m planning all these ways
Just to find my way back home
To you I wish you’d stay
So darling won’t you call me

Seeing all these signs
So darling won’t you call me home
Darling won’t you call me home

(Darling won’t you call me home)

All these things I’d rather do with you by my side

(1, 2, 3, hey)

And I’m planning all these ways
Just to find my way back home
To you I wish you’d stay
So darling won’t you call me

Seeing all these signs
So darling won’t you call me home
Darling won’t you call me home

And I’m planning all these ways
Just to find my way back home
To you I wish you’d stay
So darling won’t you call me

Seeing all these signs
So darling won’t you call me home
So darling, wont you call me home
So darling, wont you call me home
