Biography

There are at least two bands known as “The Drowners.”

1) A garage rock/punk band from NYC.
2) This is the bio for the band from Sweden.

At the place where pop meets rock and where melodies intertwine with raw power, thats where we find THE DROWNERS. Shaped by the extreme weather conditions of northern Sweden and the boredom/comfort of small city life, the band emerged in the middle of the Britpop explosion in the early nineties. They embraced that whole era with their feet still firmly rooted in American alternative rock with influences from Hüsker Dü, REM, The Del-Fuegos, The Sidewinders, The Replacements and so on. Add to that a small portion of hard rock and you have the lethal cocktail that is the foundation of THE DROWNERS.

The new album “Cease To Be” continues on the somewhat darker lyrical theme set on the previous album, “Muted To A Whisper”. Melancholy is the word that springs to mind in an effort to sum the vibe of the album, although a couple of tracks sports a take on the lighter sides of existence as well. The rough riffs and soaring drums are ever present, mixed with plenty of sweet vocal harmonies. Songwriting and lyrics are still the main ingredients though, delivered by vocal and rythm with more punch and energy than ever before.
