If you looked up NYC punk-pop in some kind of musical dictionary then you’d find a photo of Drowners; maybe one of these photos.
There isn’t a stage big enough for this band. Tucked away on the Star Theater platform barely contained the performance from Drowners as they opened for Temples Thursday night on the opening evening of Soul’d Out Music Festival here in Portland.
A lead singer hailing from the UK leads a cast of NYC transplants that are quickly gaining a following in their short time together.
Their new self-titled LP is out now on Frenchkiss Records.
