United Waters are back on Drawing Room for their 4th LP and the first cut sighs dry ice with a quiet cool. Still hung on the songwriting of Brian Sullivan (Mouthus, Spectre Folk, Death Unit) the band occupies a strange niche between the kind of pulsating electronic-snipped post-punk that Total Control purveys — stripped raw but seemingly hovering six inches above the rest of us — and the slightly fuzzed bedroom pop that might have shown up on Sacred Bones and Captured Tracks in their infancy. Sullivan has a detached style that’s aloof enough to make him seem like he’s got all the answers, but approachable enough to let us ask him what they are. “Arrowheads” drips with a malleable nature that blends the guitars through the wires of the drums, rippling the sound like liquid seeping out of the speakers. Gonna want to keep an eye out for this one when it lands on Drawing Room November 8th.
