Hear Drowners’ Swooning Single ‘Luv, Hold Me Down’
New York City foursome's first LP slated for January
Drowners, like so many wounded New York City romantics before them, first crossed paths in the downtown bar scene. Singer-guitarist Matt Hitt passed some demos to guitarist Jack Ridley and bassist Erik Snyder, the three formed a band and were soon joined by drummer Lakis Pavlou. The Between Us Girls EP arrived this past February, and Drowners’ first full-length album is set for release on January 28, 2014 by way of Frenchkiss Records. In advance of the upcoming self-titled long-player comes “Luv, Hold Me Down,” the record’s tight, twinkling love note of a first single. “Hold me down and never let me go,” Hitt sings. “A schoolboy grin that only goes to show / Well, I could never have such control / Every time you leave I want to go.” Hear it below.
