Drowning Effect is a promising band I discovered about a month ago with their latest long-play album release, “Techniculture“, which was released on July 2, 2021. For those who haven’t heard about the artist before, Drowning Effect have started their careers with a long-play self-titled album in 2019. And Techniculture is only their second official release. Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Drowning Effect is making San Francisco rock. That would be the briefest definition of their music I guess. Well, I have listened to the entire album a few times on repeat, then slept on it, and now listening to it once again while writing my review. I must admit that I had thought quite a lot about what to write. In the end, Techniculture, without hesitation, deserves a good mark. I have no doubts about that.
The musicality in Drowning Effect’s Techniculture blends traditional and nostalgic vibes in the dirtiest and liveliest way. I am familiar with this sound thanks to my mate, Kandur, for a considerable time, and I enjoyed listening to it all the way to the end.
On the other hand, there also were some factors that made me think. Not all artists are expected to be innovative in their creations. Some people make the music they love listening to, and it’s that simple. Drowning Effect reminded me of this in particular. I’ve had a good time, and so many of you also will.
