Post-grunge/psych rock band, Drowning Effect, recently released their new full-length album, Techniculture!
At a time when they were finding themselves, James Spadaro, Thad Baker, and Mark Loftin eventually chose to come together to create music that reminds them of their humanity, their emotions, and their connection to one another. A lot of their angsty influences come from 70’s and 90s rock alternative bands, with a sound that reminds us of bands like U2.
With lyrics like, “Wanna play a game I played a lot? From all the pain / I stained a lot,” and “So many warnings signs / I blew them off / You saw my warning sign / (And) then you blew me off,” in their opening track for the album, “Bright Lights,” Drowning Effect expresses a haunting visual of certain struggles that can appear within a relationship.
According to the band, “Too much information, like too much of anything, can be toxic.”
