They're the kind of poppy punk that likes to lend itself to the tag “post-punk revival,” but if you've still got the Strokes' Is This It on your iPod, then Drowners could be your new chilling-out music. Formed just three years ago in New York, Drowners released their self-titled full-length album in January, and now are cruising the country (with support from band Bully) on a tour sponsored by hip-again shoe company Dr. Martens, complete with meet-and-greet events at some of the label's stores. It's a branding strategy that's rather spot on—prepare for this audience to be a well-heeled group of tweens and teenagers. Take your little sister to bond over punkish boy bands and cute boots.
