Dråpe – ‘Pie In The Sky’

Drape-Pie In The Sky

Dråpe have dished up ‘Pie In The Sky’, the first track from album number two! The Norwegian quintet teased us earlier in the year with a tribute tune called ‘Together We Are Pstereo‘, but now we have an official single. ‘Pie In The Sky’ is a catchy psych poppin’ ditty that builds on the transformative ‘Canicular Days’ album of 2013. Riot Factory are releasing Dråpe’s (Drop in English) full length on October 9.

Dråpe – ‘Together We Are Pstereo’

Dråpe return with the new single ‘Together We Are Pstereo’! In case you were wondering, ‘Pstereo’ is not a type-o, it’s one of the biggest festivals in Norway (and was written in its honour). The five piece are currently at work on a new album, and have recently recruited Eirik (of Angelica’s Elegy) following the departure of long-termer Hanne. ‘Together We Are Pstereo’ is a sunny psych pop gem, with sunny melodies that pick up where their 2013 LP ‘Canicular Days‘ left off. Dråpe (pronounced ‘Draw-peh’), can do no wrong! Pick up the single via iTunes.

Dråpe – ‘Dråpe’ EP

It’s been more than a year since Dråpe delivered their ‘Canicular Days‘ LP but the wait for new material shouldn’t be too much longer. The Oslo five piece have been busy working on a fresh full length (with a single expected before the year is out) *crosses fingers*! If you missed Dråpe’s debut EP back in 2011 then do yourself a favour and jump straight into the stream below. ‘By Heart’ is still brilliant – frequently stuck on repeat!

Dråpe – ‘Sister’s Eye’

DRÅPE - 'SISTER'S EYE'

One of the strongest albums of 2013!? We’re not even half way there but Norway’s Dråpe are going to be a hard act to follow. The shoegaze/dream/psych pop five piece have produced a brilliant debut LP in ‘Canicular Days’ (out now through Riot Factory). If the singles ‘Blue Skies‘ or ‘Memories‘ didn’t convince you – give this album cut a spin and see if it converts you! The summery sweet introduction of ‘Sister’s Eye’ slowly becomes an epic whirlwind. p.s. vinyl internationally delivered via Tiger.

Dråpe – ‘Memories’

DRAPE - 'MEMORIES'

‘Canicula Days’ the debut album from Norway’s Dråpe is out next month (April 18 via Riot Factory). We’ve treated our ears to the first single ‘Blue Skies‘, now dive into the follow up – ‘Memories’. I’ve heard four or five tracks from this record and while I’m not a betting man, I do love to contradict myself – so five bucks says this is one of the strongest dream pop albums of 2013! *puts crystal ball back on shelf* P.s. don’t hold me to the five bucks please.

 
Dråpe – ‘Memories’


 
Dråpe: “Memories just happened to come about while we were recording our album and was nicknamed “the dance song”. Someone once said that it’s the perfect song for some good old fashioned linedancing, but yeah – we’ve still to see anything like that at our shows (except when singer and guitarist Ketil gets in the right mood backstage, that is). It’s is a feel-good song, with a sense of fragility lurking just beneath the surface. The song is basically about the waking up a little late on a Sunday and letting your mind fly backwards through last nights ups and downs.”

Dråpe – 'Blue Skies'

Oslo shoegazers Dråpe return with the new 7inch single ‘Blue Skies’ available now through Riot Factory. ‘Blue Skies’ is a melodic psych pop tune, no doubt with more reach than previous efforts. However the B-side ‘Wash Away’ ventures back into their gazing roots, with a wall of sonic swirls.

 
Dråpe – ‘Blue Skies’

The five piece produced one of the stand out dream pop/shoegaze EPs of 2011 featuring the much loved tune ‘By Heart‘ which made an impact on the Hype Machine charts. Dråpe (pronounced ‘Draw-peh’) will release their debut album this April, in the meantime pick up ‘Blue Skies’ via Tiger here.
