Downers have released their latest 3 track EP ‘Noose’ via Local Colour Recs.
Comprised of former members of Me VS Hero, MOU & Six Ten Repeater, Downers are a melodic, shoegaze/grunge four-piece from the NorthWest, who combine a raw sound with infectious hooks and a DIY/Punk attitude.
‘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.
Produced by Bob Cooper (NightHarvest / Deathwish Inc.), ‘Noose’ is Downers follow up to their self-produced ‘self titled’ debut EP, released May 2015.
The band are currently booking tour dates throughout the UK in support of ‘Noose’.
