Tapping into the Alt-Rawk fuzz of the ’90’s, Boston’s dropbear exude an enchanting kind of aura on debut single, “Bystander”, which is similarly endearing to fans of that era of music while also standing tall as an enduring track all its’ own serving as the perfect introduction to the quintet ahead of their first EP arriving in July.
Consisting of artists from acts like Rio Bravo, Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys, Some Cities, Hold This Moment, and more, dropbear is a veritable melting pot of juxtaposed styles with a final form sounding like all of that and none of that at the same time. There’s magic to be found from every member in dropbear and within every second of “Bystander”. It’s Tee Jay’s thunderous wall of drums, the ferocious melodic noise put forth by guitarists Matt Tillman and Joseph Perrier, Christian Russo’s seismic bass rumble, and Rachel Bacon’s grand vocal range that careens and produces a crushing croon all put together to make the sort of Lush meets Hum sonic sorcery that music fans will not be able to resist.
