Drop Down Smiling = a four piece rock outfit hailing from middle England.

Against a backdrop of generic indie and dull pop-punk regens, Drop Down Smiling stand out with a mix of modern rock, raucous electronica and rich, resonant four-part harmonies.

Having previously worked with Gavin Monaghan (Editors, The Twang, Ocean Colour Scene) & Jason Wilcock (You Me At Six, We Are The Ocean), Recent releases have been produced by Peter Dowsett of Abbey Road Studios (Scouting For Girls, Pharrell Williams & Snoop Dogg to name but a few).

Experimental yet organic, with high octane hooks and even higher energy on the stage, Drop Down Smiling have been described as ‘Biffy Clyro meets Bring Me the Horizon’ & ‘Red Hot Chilli Peppers meets System of a Down’. If those comparisons don’t warrant a listen, what the hell does?!

Drop Down Smiling have previously shared the stage with Saves The Day, We Are The Ocean, The Blackout, Lonely The Brave, Rat Attack, LostAlone, Blitz Kids, Idiom and tonnes more.

Still not convinced? Don’t listen to us, listen to these reviews:

“Melodically encapsulating their way to the masses is a talent ridden rock jaunt the world needs, and their name is Drop Down Smiling, a band with a first aid kit full of vibes. “
– SoundSphere Magazine

“A rousing riot of noise that makes me want to get up out of my seat and protest against my mundane life…the raw power of the West Midlands accent twist the music into a call to arms for anyone who has ever felt oppressed. It is a marching song and I can feel my feet tapping.”
– PunkProspect

“Their high energy performances are sure to be one that kick starts a gig in fighting style, make-way for mosh pits, crowd surfers and emotional air punches.”

“The power, skills and pure groove… over weighs a lot of the alternative/electronic/pop that I have ever heard before. Played with precision and passion, I can see this band being played on a BBC Radio 1 day time playlist”
– Throwing Shapes Media
