Despite having a reasonable level of success with their first album, New York based (with a hint of Welsh) outfit Drowners second LP is filled with uncertainty and darkness. This time round the band write the songs collaboratively rather than coming from the pen of singer Matt Hitt. Still, their brand of dark post punk will appeal to fans of Interpol, Echo and the Bunnymen etc.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 1st March 2018
I think the band is really good. The vocals are decent, but not earth shattering. The lyrics, overall, are very well constructed. There is a bit of range in style shown here. The sound of Drowners has evolved rapidly in just 2 years from their debut (depending on your perspective, that album was either a bold tribute or a blatant rip-off from of the Strokes' debut album "Is This It") towards a more pop-oriented tendency, and that's not a bad thing. And at 37 min., the album has just about the perfect running time.
