Houston outfit Drowner has a knack for using contrast to amp up the drama of its neo-shoegaze compositions. A prime example of Drowner’s savvy play of textures, “Stay with Me” is at once slow-burning and explosive, as muscular, steadily building guitars and Anna Bouchard’s ethereal vocals play off of a driving rhythm section. PopMatters is premiering “Stay with Me”, which comes from Drowner’s upcoming full-length You’re Beautiful, I Forgive You, out on 13 August via Saint Marie Records.
