The full length debut from Oakland duo, Upside Drown. Taking retro pop and bringing it into the metaphysical--imagery of magic and nature disguised as catchy love songs, fairytales and mythology as piano ballads. Nine songs too good to easily fit in your hands (bigger than that).

Written by Colleen Johnson and Rosie Steffy.

Mastered by Evan Hashi.

Colleen Johnson now co-leads Flying Circles, whose debut recently came out on Antiquated Future:

"Capturing the hearts of all those who listen, it is no question that these two ladies have created a spell that truly works...Upside Drown takes you to a land of no rules and no judgement, where you have the freedom to play as you please." - Indie Shuffle

"This duo creates a sympathetic resonance that rings through the listener gut, amplifying their hunger for more of their music. The music of Upside Drown quenches the human soul through their subtle complexity." - Fiusm

"Emotional and almost sacred sounding music. These two ladies’ harmonies can lift the heavens. This may or may not be the only thing I have listened to for weeks." - KSPC

"Mood Music is a gloom folk wonderland just garage enough to get the heavy homies at the show bobbing their heads up and down...Think a softer Grass Widow with a wider palette." - Cassette Gods

"Mood Music is sparse on the surface, but scrutiny reveals an intricate weaving of sound. Staccato guitar and bass bounce against each other to form screwball harmonies while the stop-and-start rhythms keep you off balance. It's sort of a combination between the jazz-inspired complexity of fIREHOSE and vocal stylings that faintly remind me of Dirty Projectors. There's something I can't quite put my finger on that makes the sound instantly infectious" - Half-Gifts
