Drowners to play The Sunflower Lounge Birmingham

In the late summer of 2011, Drowners frontman Matthew Hitt found himself in New York City. He’s from a small town in rural Wales but New York is where Hitt feels most at home. New York’s signature up-all-night energy courses through Drowners’ self-titled debut, but there’s a sweet melancholy to the album as well.

The album first single, ‘Luv, Hold Me Down’ is a propulsive slice of perfect garage pop. The other side of coin, according to Hitt, comes courtesy of the melodic and melancholy track ‘A Button on Your Blouse’ which changes up the pace of Drowners’ self-professed brand of romantic aggression.  The other side of coin, according to Hitt, comes courtesy of the melodic and melancholy track ‘A Button on Your Blouse’ which changes up the pace of Drowners’ self-professed brand of romantic aggression.

Fresh from supporting fellow New Yorker’s SKATERS, Drowners return to Birmingham for their own headline show at The Sunflower Lounge.
