WOAH Take a Dreamlike Step Forward With "Drowning"
In their latest single, "Drowning," WOAH explores the feeling of falling out of the honeymoon phase and looking for comfort in a relationship where it has been lost. The unsteady nature of an on-again, off-again relationship is a natural recipe for uncertainty, and this song encapsulates the moment where you decide that the relationship is worth saving and it is worth trying to move forward after having been emotionally absent for so long.
"Progressing from our previous release, 'On Your Sleeve,' we decided to amplify the energy, high production, and synthesizers that we liked in order to experiment and further develop our sound as a band. This song is a new step-forward for us, but we made a conscious effort to maintain our classic WOAH sound that has been developed on the Better Left Unsaid EP and ‘On Your Sleeve’ by recording and mixing in our shared apartment, while still bringing more attitude and energy with this new release," shares WOAH
Emerging from the city of Charlotte, North Carolina, WOAH is a four-piece group made up of the Mikey and Ruben Gomez, Zac Tice, and Jackson Martin. Forming and debuting mid-pandemic, the band found their sound with ease. Recording their entire catalog on GarageBand, WOAH has been able to accumulate thousands of streams with zero editorial help. Using their social media to the fullest, they've built a unique brand that has helped gain a core ride or die fanbase.
Their infectious indie pop is like a leech that grasps onto you for dear life. From their memorable hooks, steady guitar, to their clear songwriting abilities, each new track results in an instantaneous earworm. And you can hear their inspirations in full, from The Strokes, Hippocampus, U2, The 1975, to Turnover, all of which bleed through their writing to help establish WOAH's unique sound that truly comes alive in "Drowning."
