New York City’s Drowners formed in early 2012 when singer/guitarist Matt Hitt sent some demos he’d written to guitarist Jack Ridley and bassist Erik Snyder, friends he’d met in bars downtown. Drummer Lakis Pavlou joined a few months later and the band began playing shows regularly around the Lower East Side.

They released a 7" in February in the UK called Between Us Girls. And in April, 

they signed to Frenchkiss Records. “Long Hair” is the one of the singles off the EP and man, it sounds so much like the Smiths. 

You can catch this band live over the summer as they’ll be touring and making stops in some the following places: Baltimore, MD; the Bowery Ballroom on 6/17; Madison, WI; and others.
