ONLINE WRISTBAND ALLOCATION HAS SOLD OUT FOR THIS INSTORE. THERE ARE SOME WRISTBANDS AVAILABLE IN STORE ONLY WITH PURCHASE OF THE ALBUM.

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A LUNCHTIME INSTORE


Debut album from Drowners and it's an instant pop album that's for fans of Suede, Vaccines, The Strokes and Eddie and the Hot Rods. The first single, 'Luv, Hold Me Down,' is a propulsive slice of perfect garage pop. The other side of coin, 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. But it's the cheeky grime of 'Long Hair' that really showcases their easy, dirty thrill. Throughout the album are Hitt's elegantly understated lyrics, the kind that adhere to, Salinger-esque economy of words. The result is an album that's equal parts playfulness and disquietude, toeing the line between music that sweeps the listener up, and lyrics that beg for their deep sensitivity and understanding.
