New York based post-punk band Drowners have shared the video for their new single "A Button On Your Blouse".

The video was directed by Peter Zachary Voelker. Watch it below.
Grudle Bay began life in 2003 as a musical project between school friends Nathan Allsworth and Tom Hodges. Using modest instruments, unusual percussion and warped atmospherics to create an unpretentious soundtrack to the world around them, Grudle Bay collaborated with a variety of musicians on a dynamic live set and some truly dreamy recordings.
In 2011 the duo were joined by Tom Dyson and James Pamphlion. With the conviction that dancing will always be cool, Grudle Bay hope to make your heart beat a little faster, your feet move a little quicker and your smile reach a little higher.
Recently the band revealed the video for their very catchy song "Colder", taken from their excellent 3-track EP of the same name, released last year. Grab your copy here.
Their infectious music has the right combination of dream-pop atmospherics mixed with the most catchy elements of 80s new wave, think of Lotus Eaters, China Crisis... Do we need to say more?
** Grudle Bay songs "Colder" and "Running" both peaked at #17 in our Best Tracks of 2013 chart.
