Letdown. Drop Video For “Crying In The Shower”; Debut EP Out Now Via Big Loud Records


Big Loud Rock, the new alternative/rock imprint of Big Loud Records, and Letdown. are excited to announce the release of “Crying In The Shower”, the Chicago/Nashville-based songwriter and vocalist’s seven-song debut EP (stream on all platforms HERE). Documenting Blake Coddington of Letdown.’s internal struggle as he searches for answers in times of darkness, uncertainty and self-doubt, “Crying In The Shower” features a collection of stadium-sized singles led by the title track that is the perfect example of the wild, emotional ride that Letdown. enjoys taking his fans on. Behind the reactive hook and catchy rhythm, Letdown. navigates listeners through the experience and inner turmoil of trying to get over someone you can’t forget.

“You ever listen to happy songs when you’re upset or sad or depressed and they make you feel even worse?” Coddington asks with a smirk. “That’s what ‘Crying In The Shower’ is for me. It’s like, ‘Here’s a list of terrible things, set to an incredibly upbeat, happy beat’ — which is almost a metaphor for me. I’m a happy-looking guy who is quite the opposite on the inside”.

Letdown. (period included) may have started as a pandemic project for Blake Coddington, but the Chicago/Nashville-based rocker is in a very different place in 2023. Having spent the last three years cultivating a fervent fanbase through a number of single releases and emerging as a striking live act — finally bringing his music into the physical lives of his online fans across several sold-out, headlining shows this past year — Coddington is rapidly growing his presence away from the internet for the first time in Letdown.’s short history.

The powerful vocals and emotional lyrics over catchy, upbeat drums and guitars originally served as a cathartic way for the songwriter to express himself while working a dead-end job that he hated. But 2022 saw Letdown. being signed to Big Loud Rock and moving beyond his beginnings as a viral, at-home musician. This year, however, represents a whole new start for the vocalist, or as Coddington himself puts it: “It’s Season II of Letdown., and it’s definitely the biggest chapter yet”.

As for the new EP, pushing forth a collection of seven songs is still a bit of a new experience for Coddington, but he remains thrilled for the development of Letdown. as well as having the opportunity to connect with those who have found solace in his powerful online community. “Getting to put out something like an EP seems so classic to me, which makes me really excited about it”. he summarizes. “I’m honestly just excited that people won’t have to select another song after each one and can just ride the wave. I think we’ve really curated it in a way that takes you on an emotional rollercoaster — in the best way possible”.
