"This song made it onto the new album pretty early," says vocalist Adam Binder. "I was listening to a lot of mid-tempo 90s alternative rock at the time and I wanted to write a song with that same semi-dreamy vibe. I had that intro riff going on a loop pedal in the studio for about two hours just vibing off it. As for the lyrical content, like all songs on this new album, it’s written about other people I know, and what it would be like to be in their shoes. 'Drowning' is about a person that has been through a tough time and they are finding it hard to move on with their life. It’s about getting stuck in what’s happened in the past and not being able to shake off those experiences."
