Havelocke guitarist/vocalist Owen Cousins said of new single Drowning: “Drowning is a track we’ve been working on since well before the release of the ‘This is Havelocke’ EP, (released 08/2019 via Just Exist Records) and one that we’ve been sneaking into our set for months. It was an easy song to write – Hope just picked up her guitar, played the opening riff, and we finished a lot of the song in the same writing session.
“The song itself is about letting out your emotions and not holding anything back, as grizzly as the details might be. Sometimes we, I included, are scared to talk about our feelings and will often let ourselves be suffocated by them. Ultimately, it can only take one person to actually act like they care to take feeling that away.”
The music video was directed by fellow Sheffield musician – While She Sleeps‘ bassist Aaran McKenzie.
