Listen: The Big Drops – “By The Water”
These witty, charming, almost mischievous collective of artists create a unique sound that is all at once experimental, indie, soft, psychedelic, & full of good vibes.” – The Hook Journal
(Brooklyn, NY) Currently making strides in the constantly evolving Brooklyn music scene, NJ-based rockers The Big Drops’ origin story couldn’t be any further from pavement and concrete. The band was formed in 2011 when brothers Greg (lead vox, rhythm guitar) and Vramshabouh Kherlopian (lead guitar, backing vox) went to live together in a small log cabin for three years. They bought their own recording equipment, and went through numerous lineup changes before finding Caleb Estey (drums) and Steve Donahue (bass) in 2015.
Now, The Big Drops are readying up to release their debut full-length, Time, Color, out June 23rd via self-release.
Channeling genre-hopping forebears, Time, Color finds The Big Drops running through a sonic wilderness inspired by left-of-center pop music of the late 1960’s & contemporary musicians with subtle electronic tendencies.
“We feel like our music touches on a variety of different vibes and colors,” shares Vramshabouh. “So we like to think the overall theme of this album is diversity of life, the different emotions there are, and how we can express different feelings while still being the same person. Essentially, life is complex and beautiful, is the theme.”
