Bio

After meeting through mutual contacts in Chapel Hill and NYC, The Drowning Lovers formed in 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. The result has rewarded us with a striking style and much-welcomed mirth.
