Drowse, the nom de plume of Kyle Bates, will be returning to the public eye with a second album, Cold Air, due out March 9 via The Flenser.
Listen below to the album’s first single, “Quickening“.
“‘Quickening’ is a song about the sudden upending influence other people can have over my mental well-being,” Bates said of the song. “Someone tells me a story about death and anxiety flows through me like cold air. I instantly start ruminating over the fear that I will waste my life, that I’m living in bad faith. The song frames this struggle as a conversation.”
