The Drowns - Know Who You Are 7"

On their latest 7” Seattle’s The Drowns pay tribute to one of their top influences, Slade, with a cover of their song “Know Who You Are”.  While they do stay somewhat faithful to the arrangement of the original, they give it a bit of a punch and a little more bite resulting in a very catchy, straight-up rocker.  With the sound of a cowbell leading the way “Guidelines of Control”, the original on the flipside is another great cut that also finds them shifting a little away from their usual punk rock for sound that is more in the classic rock vein.
