On Sunday, Sydney and Allie of WGTB had the chance to chat with DC-area band Drop Electric.
The group, formed in 2008 in the midst of tragedy, has grown to create a rich, cinematic sound that’s captured the attention of music critics in Washington and beyond.
In the past few months, Drop Electric have released an EP, received mad props from NPR’s Bob Boilen, and have signed with a management company with some big plans in the works for the big screen.
Though rising stars of the experimental rock scene, fame hasn’t yet gone to the heads of members Sho, Ramtin, and Kristina. They gave us one of the best “WGTB” meanings we’d heard in a long time, as well as some bloopers to boot.
Be sure to check out the full interview below. Drop Electric will be playing at the 9:30 Club THIS SATURDAY, September 22. They’ll also be at St. Stephen’s Church playing a benefit show on October 6.
