The Drowned God

Solid State Records recording artist The Drowned God premiered a new music video for “Less Than an Exit” today at New Noise. The song comes from the band’s debut album, I’ll Always Be the Same, which will hit stores and streams on Jan. 25.

The band spoke with New Noise about the track:

“‘Less Than an Exit’ is about mood congruence; specifically, how a negative emotional state can lead to feelings of stasis and destructive thought loops which perpetuate the mindset that you’ll feel this way forever. This song encapsulates the main theme of I’ll Always Be The Same.”

The band was formed in 2015 and released their debut album, Moonbearer, in 2017. (Oh and, in case you’re curious, the Drowned God is the deity worshipped by the iron born people of the Iron Islands from Game of Thrones.)

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
