Miami Drowned will release Old Blood on March 17th. The EP will be the debut release from the project and we have an interview below followed by a full stream of the EP. Check it out.
What inspired Miami Drowned?
After bouncing around through countless basement bands in my area, I learned only I could really know what I felt while writing songs, and even that wasn’t guaranteed. One day, I came across a hypothetical article of what could happen in cities such as Miami if climate change continued at the rate that it is right now. All I remember is the closing line of that article was, “All we will remember is that Miami Drowned,” and I decided to lift that phrase and transform it into a device under which to make music.
With Old Blood being your debut release, what led up to it? Were you involved with music previously or is this your first foray into it?
My main means for expressing myself and attempting to make sense of everything has always been music, both through listening and making it. If I came up with a riff or lyric or melody anywhere, I’d sing it into my phone or just replay it in my head until I got home for the day. Old Blood is a compilation of all of these misplaced thoughts, finally organized, or as well as they can be. I’d never been able to create music the way I wanted to until I did it on my own now, so I’m happy to say that this is my first official foray into making music.
