Hamilton, ON-based psych-rock band, The Crowleys are back with the third single from their upcoming debut full-length album, “Sewer Drain”. It covers similar dystopian themes explored in previous singles, “Lampshade” and “Somnia” by touching on the feeling of futility that is born from living in a capitalist society.
The band shares on the recording experience,
“The song was recorded by Cohen Wylie, mixed by Cohen and Michael Keire, and produced by Cohen, Michael, and The Crowleys at Threshold Recording Studio. The recording experience saw the song go through some drastic changes. For example, all of the synth lead parts were written in the studio. Also, mixing introduced a lot more dynamics and added variety to certain repeated sections. All of this turned the song into a much more polished pop song.”
When asked what the favourite lyric from the song is, they share,
““Down the sewer drain, fall my tears like rain” – This lyric is very much inspired by songs from The Shangri-Las, The Everly Brothers, and Roy Orbison among countless other artists who have songs about crying in the rain. We wanted to join the leagues of classics that employ this theme.”
