Portrait of a Drowned Man has been part of the Duluth music scene since 2003, when guitarists Paul Connolly and Justin Kervina set out to salvage some post-rock instrumental tunes from their previous project, Vermont Connection. The rest of the cast has changed a few times, with Ken Nyberg keeping the rhythm behind the drums for the past three years, Aaron Richner taking up guitar for a second stint with the band, and newest member Everett Groves handling bass duties. Together, they put out instrumental jams that transition from smooth melody into eventual chaos. The latest PoaDM release, Music From the Film Wicker Kittens, dropped in spring 2015.
