Based in a city known for stagnation and business as usual, Drop Electric tells a different story about the nation's capital. Drop Electric is a manic barrage of soaring vocals, heavy guitars, atmospheric textures, and thunderous percussion, brought to life through dynamic songwriting. Their live show has been described as "epic" by NPR's Bob Boilen and most aptly "...as if the listener has started to sleepwalk through a dark art house film" by the DCist's Valerie Paschall. The band released its label debut on Lefse Records in October 2013 to critical praise. Gaining acclaim from NPR, MTVU, and Consequence of Sound, the band has had its music placed in the trailer for "300: Rise of an Empire" and has had its song "Empire Trashed" played as part of a movie premiere on the International Space Station. In 2014, Drop Electric has headlined the Fillmore and sold out their first headlining show at 930 Club.
