Paper Trails and Binds
The Drownout is an Atlanta indie rock band that merges powerful melodies, eerie atmospherics, and fast, driving dance beats into conscious, heartfelt songs designed to move those listening -- literally. A part of the newest wave of New Wave-inspired bands, The Drownout distinguishes itself from it's colleagues by combining an unapologetic musicality with a high-energy performance that one would typically only expect from a hardcore punk band. =============== Hear what others are saying about the album: 'Paper Trails and Binds is one of this year's most infectious rock-dance albums.' - Atlanta Music Guide, September 2008 'Their funky/indie/dance rock is reminiscent of The Bravery and The Killers. Simple instrumentals paired with solid vocals and a splash of synth and keys makes their music ideal to dance to...they have a tight sound and an immense stage presence. If you're a fan of the East Atlanta, skinny jeans, indie rock scene you should definitely try on The Drownout.' - Rock Fist Reviews, September 2008 'Atlanta's The Drownout plays an interesting take on the new New Wave resurgence hiding at the bottom of music's collective cereal box lately. Vocalist-slash-guitarist Jason Jones has an eerie quality to his vocals and melodies not unlike those of Interpol's Paul Banks.' - Free Times, May 2008.
