The band comments: “It’s here! The new Drune EP »Drown« is now available on all the streaming things. Vinyl can be purchased through our Bandcamp. Pre-sales have been going quick, and we’re probably not doing a 2nd press, so get on it if you wanna grip it.”

The »Drown« EP is a few years in the making. The initial sounds and riffs came about in the Summer of 2020, sitting in practice spaces, trying to fill space and time. Everyone in Drune has gone through significant changes in the past few years, but this project stayed as a constant and kept calling us back. Drune has always said that as long as the music is there, we’ll be there to capture it.

Lyrically, the songs tell a story of a great wave rising from the horizon, blocking the sun. The wave crashes over land and pulls you down to the ocean floor. You’re pulled further, through the crust, down to a cavernous lake in a world below. In this lake, the dead wade in a large wooden boat, unraveling the secrets of existence, as they travel along their journey through death.

Writing these songs was a way to express grief and anger – for everything lost in the past few years; people, communities, hopes and goals. In that expression, there’s a recognition of that sorrow, allowing it to take its course and wipe the slate clean.
