Mr A says …I’ve been waiting to see what the incredibly unique Sigur Ros would eventually spawn in new artists. Drop Electric is the first example I’ve heard of that.
Drop Electric is an experimental rock band based in Washington D.C. and NYC. Based in melody and distortion and deeply inspired by cinema, their live show is a combination of evocative music, unique vocals and narrative film.
In the summer of 2012, they released their 4-track album “Drop Electric Sampler Platter.”
In July 2012, they signed with Pusher Music, a specialized crew of artists creating music for trailers based in LA. They joined a roster of artists that includes DJ Shadow and Orbital. In August 2012, their track “Empire Trashed” was featured on NPR’s “All Songs Considered”.
