Indie Pop quartet Drowners, who took NYC by storm a few years ago with their 2012 debut EP and the following self-titled album, just unveiled new single 'Cruel Ways' (streaming), and took the opportunity to announce the release of their sophomore LP "On Desire," out on French Kiss in June. The band will be playing several shows at SXSW this year, culminating in an official showcase at Cheer Up Charlies (900 Red River Street), slated for Saturday, March 19th.


Drowners headline The Deli's Ten Year Anniversary party #2 - Brooklyn Bazaar, 08.01 - FREE SHOW!

Drowners, a band that didn't grace the cover of one of our 2013 issue just because of an unfortunate coincidence, will be headlining the second of The Deli's Ten Year Anniversary Parties, scheduled for this upcoming Friday August 01 at Brooklyn Bazaar (it's a free show!). The group has been one of the most successful NYC indie exports this year, and is scheduled to play the legendary Leeds and Reading festivals in the UK later in August.

Weekly Feature: Drowners

Taking their name from seminal Britpop band Suede’s 1992 debut single, New York City’s Drowners prepare to unleash their modern-day revival of that classic indie-pop sound. The band is fronted by Matthew Hitt, a Welsh-born former full-time professional male model, who has called New York his home now for the past two years. In April, the four-piece group signed to Frenchkiss Records, and, after a few important show at the recent CMJ Music Marathon, it's currently putting the finishing touches on the upcoming record, scheduled for an early 2014 release. - LINK: Dave Cromwell's interview with Drowners.
