Drainer’s new EP Year Round is out now.
Who: Joe Putnam, Jon David Flores and Vincent Flores.
What: Alternative rock/pop punk.
Where: San Francisco, California.
Why: Drainer love fuzzy guitars, big choruses and the 1990s. Coincidentally, don’t tell anyone, so do we. We’ve had their new EP Year Round on repeat for the last week or so and it refuses to get old. Our current favourite track is ‘Murderer’ with its mid tempo STP swagger, bratty vocals and fuzzed up raw production.
But that’s not the only highlight on the record. We’re also a bit partial to the more restrained and melodic ‘Dim’. It’s a sunny, summer gem of a track. Just enough production to perform.
