“That was fun!” exclaims Seattle KEXP host Cheryl Waters at the end of Drowners’ live performance. Great commentary Cheryl. It was great, really. But if you’re like me and want to ignore her voice, feel free to skip from 3:48-6:23.
The New York band stopped by the Seattle radio station to play some tracks (which also happen to be my favorite) from their self-titled debut album. Great things are on the way for Drowners, with having played this past Governor’s Ball, their UK tour is already under way, and they’ve just announced that they’ll be playing at Reading and Leeds. Their takeover is really just beginning and I see a bright future for the band. And there’s no better proof than the lovely performance recorded above at KEXP. Maybe the reason why I disliked listening to Cheryl Waters speak so much is because I just really wanted to hear Drowners play? Yeah, let’s go with that.
Also! Drowners will be playing a free show in Montauk at Surf Lodge on July 19th!
Drowners is Matt Hitt, Jack Ridley, Erik Snyder, Joe Brodie.
