Although there is a lot of Joe in Drownd, the project acquires a broader dimension when it comes to performances. “When it is taken live I’m lucky to have a full band to front it, consisting of Paul Traveller on drums, Rich Watson on guitar and Sam Forrester on Bass duties,” says the artist, who has learnt to surround himself with like-minded and talented people following his latest releases. A team that works for a common goal, in which we also find creatives from other artistic disciplines that transcend music and who contribute in the search for the sound and aesthetics he pursues.
“What the track is saying is that it is better to live in filth, indulging in what takes your fancy as opposed to oppressing these thoughts, urges and feelings which will, in the end, leave you a numb, bitter shell of a human,” comments the singer about his new single Filth, that hit all platforms today. And their fans are in luck, their first full live band show supporting the iconic Scalping and Mandy, Indiana will take place at The Black Prince in Northampton on 25th February - tickets are available here.
