The Sky Drops – Christmas Feels Like Halloween

I feel a cramp in the pit of my stomach because I haven’t been able to concentrate on the flood of tinsel tinted mp3s that have been arriving at my inbox since late November. I love Christmas, the music it produces and when it comes fitted with an indie aesthetic it really puts a twinkle in my fairy lights. Really gonna get stuck in over the next 24 hours. Thusfar, this little beaut from the Sky Drops has proven a standout. The Delaware duo are best known for their MBV stylings (Rob Montejo used to be in Smashing Orange) but here they strip back to a near Revolver like incarnation. The results are impressive, the tune has a classic early 90’s feel and it’s easy to swoon at the faultless harmonising. This is melt in the mouth stuff and will appeal to even shoegaze’s non-believers (how could you). ‘Bourgeois Beat’, the Sky Drops debut album was released earlier this year on hugger friends SVC records.
