1. Empire Trashed
Thick, atmospheric arrangements, lush keys/electronics and minimal guitars do well to support a beautiful singular voice. Rhythmically this track is upbeat, but the mood is one of a broken heart seeking healing.
2. Fighting at the Mall
With an intro exploring electronic music, similar to Radiohead and Gorillaz, this is another slick and moody track.
3. Santo Domingo
Out of nowhere, the band take on a more Eastern tone and also hints of deep rage come out through the lead chants with beautiful results. Heavy beats galore.
4. Slick Willy’s Last Waltz
Sprawling and epic indie rock.
Drop Electric show a lot of promise and their current popularity is well-deserved. “Drop Electric Summer Sampler” EP is a great offering for their fans, and also a solid introduction to the band for newcomers. Taking influence from artists like Sigur Ros, Radiohead, Portishead and Muse, Drop Electric come across as earnest and emotionally mature, celebrating the best aspects of their heroes while adding their own unique passion to the mix.
