Salt Lake City’s No Sun are gearing up to release their debut album If Only on January 20th of next year via The Native Sound, but today Impose has the premiere of it’s first single, “Drown in You”. While they’ve only been together for a year and a half, No Sun have already toured the US multiple times and “Drown in You” has a dynamic structure and powerful sound that no doubt translates quite impressively when performed live.
“Drown in You” opens intimately, a slightly distant voice intoning as off kilter chords are lazily strummed. Soon bouncing percussion and fuzzy guitars kick in, a retro grunge vibe clearly present. The vocals are at times soaked in reverb under gnashing distorted guitars and crashing percussion until the entire song begins its long descent over the horizon. Warm, chorus laden arpeggios usher “Drown in You” out, washing the listener away in their silvery blue tones.
Jordon Strang had quite a bit to say about the song itself.
“Drown In You” is one of the oldest songs on the record. We were initially going to record it while we were tracking our previous EP “Warm” but we were short on time and didn’t want to rush it and have our efforts result in a lesser product. Drown In You is definitely a love song. It focuses on the feeling of finding a sense of home within your love for someone else. It was intended to be a single in the sense that it is one of the brightest and most accessible songs on the record, and serves as a sort of peak in the contrast you’ll find throughout the different moods within the album. We’re very happy to finally be sharing it.
