Drop Electric



Biography

A manic barrage of soaring female vocals, distorted guitars, tribal percussion, controlled by structured dynamic song writing. Musical astrophysics. A signal back from Voyager saying, "something is out here." Drop Electric is an experimental rock band based in Washington DC. Based in melody and distortion, their live show is a combination of unique vocals, evocative music and narrative film. They have been featured by the likes of NPR All Songs Considered, the Washingtonian, Washington City Paper, Brightest Young Things, and WHFS Radio. Often compared to bands such as Sigur Ros and Radiohead, Drop Electric's music is also influenced by their various cultural backgrounds. This has helped to give much of their music an unique, vaguely ethnic sound, that differentiates them from their peers. Drop Electric is currently one of DC's best known bands and have played at every major venue in the city, including the Black Cat, the Rock and Roll Hotel, and 930 Club. Drop Electric is currently signed to the licensing firm Pusher Music, joining a roster that included DJ Shadow, Crystal Method, and Orbital.
