Bristling with unbridled intensity and dynamic empowerment, CLT DRP create erratic and urgent electro-punk. Each of their tracks exudes a raw confidence and energy that channels a wealth of influences from Peaches to The Prodigy to Meshuggah. As they release a new remix of their latest single, we caught up with the Brighton based trio to get to know them In Short.
Hailing from Toronto, Southampton, and Drama the trio, comprised of Annie, Daphne and Scott, met at uni in Brighton and have been making their mark since 2017 with raging vocals and pertinent lyrics that saw literary icon Magaret Atwood tell them “don’t let the bastards grind you down” after their first show, and CLT DRP certainly haven’t. With new music coming soon, this month they play a string of dates with Bristol’ No Violet as well as playing Small Pond Record’s BadPond Festival so you have plenty of opportunities to catch them live.
We’ve got the pleasure of sharing this new remix fellow Brighton band LibraLibra have done of CLT DRP’s single ‘Speak To My’. It’s a dark, heady, glitchy blend that really augments the raw power of the original track with shuddering, warped electronica.
Enjoy the remix and get to know Brighton’s CLT DRP In Short…
Three words to describe our/my music:
Princess Nokia, JPEGMAFIA, LibraLibra
If I could see anyone play live it would be…
Maybe Bjork, she would just be so incredible to see live, or JPEGMAFIA. I would LOVE to see him smash out a set. He is such an interesting artist and I’ve seen live clips of his sets going off.
