- Hand Over Drowning Effect 3:01
Garage rock bombast, grinding post-grunge and psychedelia define the Drowning Effect. Reverb drenched vocals, soaring guitars and spacey effects are held together with the rhythmic backdrop of pulsating bass and pounding drums.
At a time when we are wading through seas of information, Spadaro (Morning Spy, Foxtail Summersault, and Tracing Figures), Baker (Tracing Figures) and Loftin (Morning Spy, Imperial Highway, Astral and solo work) have come together to create a rocking beacon of sound that reminds us of our humanity, our emotions, and our connection to one another. Named after the widespread impact of content overload, the San Francisco-based group pulses with the angsty influences of 70s psych bands and 90s alt. rockers: think Blue Cheer and The Stooges meet Jane’s Addiction and Filter. Since forming in 2021, Drowning Effect has released two albums, Drowning Effect (2019) and Techniculture (2021), both mixed by Gabriel Shepard (Cake, The Residents) at Oakland’s 25th Street Recording and mastered by LA’s Mike Wells (Jello Biafra, Green Day).
