BlackBook recently premiered the new single from Mayflower Madame, “Drown,” comparing the Oslo-based band to gothic and shoegaze heroes. According to the site, the band’s “sneering vocals and wickedly distorted guitar riffs are pure Jesus & Mary Chain, the ominous, echo-drenched atmospherics recall Sisters of Mercy, and the overall and very palpable sense of fear and dread harken back to Faith-era Robert Smith.” The new track, says BlackBook, is comprised of “theatrical, widescreen soundscapes, thundering drums and layered instrumentation.” Read what they said here, and listen to the song below.
