The Sky Drops - Bourgeois Beat
Based in Wilmington, Delaware, The Sky Drops are Rob Montejo and Monika Bullette - a superforce of guitars, drums, and vocals.
Rob Montejo's previous band Smashing Orange was one of the original American shoegaze bands, peers of Lush, Ride, Swervedriver, and My Bloody Valentine. They released 4 records and 2 singles (including UK releases), toured the USA, UK and Europe, and were signed to MCA Records.
Their debut release remained in the top 10 indie charts of Melody Maker and NME for several weeks in 1991. Smashing Orange's retrospective album 1991 was released on Elephant Stone Records in 2005.
Monika Bullette sang in the alternative band NERO, drummed for Licorice Roots, and was one of the first musicians to capture the power of the Internet by releasing Bullette's fantastic debut album "The Secrets" on the web in 2005.
Since becoming a duo, Rob and Monika have taken their moody sonic maelstrom through the Northeast Corridor, Midwest, West Coast, and UK to rapt audiences. Self-managed and self-booked, they have played with Cold War Kids, A Place to Bury Strangers, and Spindrift amongst many others.
'Bourgeois Beat' an album rife with surreal distortion and real life beauty.
