Over the next 11 weeks I’ll dig deep into the 2014 Coachella Music Festival lineup, featuring one band per day. The purpose of this piece is to assist in difficult decisions that inevitably you’ll need to make, as well as, serve as a fun countdown to Coachella Week. Note: All bands appear in a completely random order… Enjoy, and let the countdown begin!
Day 9 = Drowners
Performing = Saturday
Drowners are a Brooklyn based post-punk band that formed in 2012. The band is named after the tune “Drowners” by the Britpop outfit Suede. The vibe they’re going after is Strokes/Vaccines/Artic Monkeys and have been criticized for sounding just like that. The quartet released a 3-song EP titled Between Us Girls almost exactly a year ago, that included the single “Long Hair.” Their debut self-titled full-length coincidentally dropped today (download it below). The band is currently offering the lead single “Luv, Hold Me Down” for free on their website.
