{Drowners}

drowners_self-titled-300x300.jpg

New York newcomers' Drowners debut self-titled album grew on me...and quickly. At first I thought, they clearly wear their hearts on their sleeves. You will recognize hints of The Strokes, The Libertines, Suede, Arctic Monkeys, or The Smiths. The songs are all so short and sweet though it makes you want to just keep hitting the repeat button.
