SOUNDS LIKE:
Quirky Lounge-Noir with bursts of retro 1950’s, jazz, and blues influences. Witty, satirical, and heartbreaking lyrics that stick.

BIO:
After meeting through mutual contacts in Chapel Hill and NYC, The Drowning Lovers formed in December 2009 with a shared concept of writing through the eyes of fictional characters set in a specific location. Our locale, we decided, would be a flophouse. We each wished to involve vivid imagery in our content and to create a sound connecting with eras past. Creatively, this provided a joint base from which to begin our work. After putting together the first several songs, we let go of “the flophouse rule” and trusted our instincts as a band to carry on and build upon this platform.
