Sound it Out # 68: Drowners - "Luv, Hold Me Down" (free MP3)
New wave music ruled my teenage world. The swirly guitars and romantic vocals of bands like Echo and the Bunnymen, The Cure and The Smiths gave me great joy back in the 80s and still do today. It’s no wonder then that the Drowners debut album totally pushes my buttons. It has that perfect blend of punchy pop backdrops and moody lyrics that would satisfy any petulant teen, even the one you still carry around inside you.
“Luv, Hold Me Down” is the epitome of this. Grab it now and see if you feel the same way.
