Shooting Down Asteroids – Drown

Shooting Down Asteroids is very worried about our planet. The indie rock band initially formed in 2015 around singer-songwriter Carlos Martin Vizcarra and now includes a full lineup of guitars, bass and drums. Their name is clearly a reference to the somewhat maligned 1998 Michael Bay film Armageddon, which is still enshrined in the venerable Criterion Collection as a lauded classic. Their debut album Fine. Well​.​.​., entirely performed and recorded by Vizcarra, came out back in late 2015, but their new music video for the climate change theme song “Drown” is up to date with copyright-free footage from our government agencies NASA and NOAA and many pointed jabs at science-denying elected officials. Confrontational protest music like this is just what 2017 needs most.
