Drowners Drowners (Frenchkiss)


When I first heard Drowners‘ single “Luv, Hold Me Down” a few months ago, I thought, “what a great new British band.” Then I heard that they were a New York band and I thought, “what a great New York band trying to sound British.” Then I found out that frontman Matthew Hitt actually is a transplant and former model from the U.K. and then I just thought, “what a great band…period.” Actually as I’ve listened more and more to their self-titled debut full length, Drowners have come to remind me the most of early era Strokes. I can only wish as much success on them.

I recently had a chance to meet up with the band at MilkBoy in Philadelphia for another SubModern Session performance. If it’s possible Drowners raw energy comes through even more live! This session is available for you to download and play on your show HERE or embed from Soundcloud.

If you’re headed to SXSW this year, you owe it to yourself to check out Drowners, or see them on tour this spring. Get more info at DrownersBand.com or FrenchkissRecords.com.
