‘Noose’, the newest record from DOWNERS, is out now on 7″ vinyl and Digital through Local Colour Records. Watch the new video and see more details below.
Downers came together in early 2015, as frontman Bobby Pook had been writing material for the project towards the end of Me Vs Hero. Comprised of old school friends and friends from previous musical adventures, as a collective, they all had an urge to go back to the 90’s guitar music that got them wanting to play/learn to be in band in in the first place.
‘Noose’ is heavy on the fuzz and inspired by space, dreams and memories.
‘Erased’ is based on a recurring, lucid dream that frontman Bobby has about being invisible. In the dream, Bobby’s invisibility is a gradual process, fading from normality, to complete concealment. Bobby goes through stages of struggling with fear and acceptance, every night.
‘Graze’ relates to Bobby’s memories and glimpses of being very young, and how that it is almost another life altogether.
‘Grown Out’ is a straight up small town song. Battling the struggle of being constantly being surrounded by all this negativity and striving to achieve something more meaningful.
