Drop Electric's music is a manic barrage of soaring female vocals, distorted guitars, tribal percussion, electronic bleeps, controlled by structured, dynamic songwriting. Musical astrophysics. A signal back from Voyager saying, "something is out here."
Following the success of their 2010 album, Finding Color in the Ashes, Washington, D.C.'s Drop Electric has been featured by the likes of NPR's All Songs Considered, the Washington Post, Earmilk.com, and Brightest Young Things. NPR's Bob Boilen described their 2012 single, Empire Trashed, as "epic and cinematic music" while lauding their beautiful and intense live performance.
Often compared to M83 and Sigur Ros, Drop Electric's music is also influenced by their diverse cultural backgrounds. This has helped to give much of their music a unique, slightly ethnic sound that spans across nationalities and musical genres.
