Bobby Shoebotham Releases New Video for ‘Drown’

Describing the inspiration for the track he says “I wrote this song at work in about half an hour during a fairly ethically sticky period of my life. It’s essentially about getting to a certain passage of time and realising you’re not really who you wanted to be when you were young, and actually almost definitely would have been disgusted if your younger self could see you now.”
