Passionate vocals, combined with lush melodies and a cool, calculated crisp rock/pop edge give The Drowners a sound that is both current, yet classic.

Biography

For those of you who haven’t heard of The Drowners before, “Muted to a Whisper” is their fourth album in 6 years. The first two, “Destroyer” (1996) and “World Record Player” (1997), were released through A West Side Fabrication in Sweden. “Is There Something On Your Mind?” (2000) was recorded in LA with producer Matt Hyde for Wind-up Records in New York.

Now, let’s talk about the new stuff. The Drowners started playing acoustic shows at parties just for fun in 2000 and the response was amazing. It sounded really cool to do these full on rock songs acoustically with a raw attitude. Later when demos for the new album were recorded, it ended up sounding like loud drums, distorted guitars and screaming vocals. Nothing wrong with that, but the feel of the acoustic live shows which were so exciting, was gone! So The Drowners decided to start over again and do the record with acoustic guitars primarily, using the electric guitars for effect when they had the most impact.

The album was recorded in The Drowners’ own studio The Upstairs Room. Finished recordings were given to Kjell Nästén at Rumble Road Studio for mixing. Kjell does amazing mixes and he has worked with bands like Sahara Hotnights, The Wannadies and Fireside to name a few.
