Song Premiere: Drowning Clowns “Holds You Down”

: Song Premiere: Drowning Clowns “Holds You Down”

Today we premiere the new single from Pittsburgh-based Drowning Clowns. The group began as a passion project for Mike Speranzo (guitar, banjo, vocals), owner of the music venue and recording studio Mr. Smalls. Drowning Clowns has since expanded to include Rusted Root's Liz Berlin (guitar, keys, vocals), pro skateboarder for DC/Element/Independent Evan Smith (guitar, percussion, vocals), and Frank Spadafora (guitar, keys, vocals) from Out of the Blue and Crisis Car. The new single, "Holds You Down" will appear on Drowning Clowns' forthcoming album, set for release in 2015. Berlin tells Relix, "I love the fluid motion that 'Holds You Down' has right from the top and how the understated vocals allow the words to have a deceptively strong impact. The song keeps me moving, bubbling under throughout, growing slowly as the track progresses with low keys, beat drops and rolling guitar riffs."
