“It’s hard to know when you’re drowning slow,” exclaims Adam Winn in “Drowning Slow.” The Canadian firefighter & musician delivers touching honesty and intimacy in this memoir of a toxic relationship. His vocals are resonant and effortless, sitting above organic acoustic guitars and mandolin accents throughout much of the composition. “Drowning Slow” drifts over you like a quiet afternoon, letting you bask in your thoughts and contemplate on the past. Winn’s songwriting shows a great deal of sensibility and maturity, adding instrumental colors to his sound as the song goes along. A simple drum kit, soulful electric guitar melodies, harmonica, and soaring vocal harmonies all enter in due time to drive the song forward and culminate in a final minute that will tug at your heartstrings and make you feel truly elevated by the sonic experience that is “Drowning Slow.”
