ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The self-titled debut release from drop the fear fuses the sounds of electronic rock with the lushness of shoegazer, and an atmosphere much like something out of a Tim Burton flick. Utilizing many sounds much like a symphony would, the work itself draws many comparisons to artists such as Cocteau Twins, but with a fresh approach similar in nature to Massive Attack. Sexy, mood driven, and deep in layers, their sound is hard to categorize, but somehow comforting and familiar. The album will also be released simultaneously with a limited edition cd/dvd featuring footage shot, edited & produced by drop the fear to coincide with this musical experience.

Jason Heller - Westword

The music is a swelling, amorphous plasm of anguished melody.
"Drop the Fear is easily one of the most looming, alluring and searingly honest works of music ever produced in Denver. With all three members juggling synthesizers, beats, bass lines and guitar, the album's coherence is as impressive as its emotional rawness. Marcogliese's vocals -- an engulfing croon that crosses Beth Gibbons's slithery rasp with Beth Orton's folky warmth -- leave a trail of bruised hearts, blurry memories and hesitant hope throughout each song. The music is a swelling, amorphous plasm of anguished melody. Like Björk making snow angels with Sigur Ros or M83's brain transplanted into the body of Massive Attack, Drop the Fear sculpts circuits and atmosphere into a sound that's as soaring in scope as it is claustrophobic in tone."

Kim Owens - Kaffeine Buzz

A unified journey through sonic explorations.
"By listening to just a few seconds of Drop The Fear’s debut release, that free falling feeling lets you know they’ve accomplished what they’ve set out to do: disregarding the expected structures and boundaries of songwriting while taking you on a unified journey through sonic explorations. Each song seamlessly floats from one to another, whirling your senses and allowing you to let go and get lost in the many synthesized layers, organic galaxies, and solar powered vocals."

Elana Ashanti Jefferson - The Denver Post

A progressive CD worth repeated listens
"The latest project to emerge from Helmet Room, a loose knit Denver collective of experimental music enthusiasts, showcases how rich music can be when artists are not constricted by popular production techniques. All of the acts connected to Helmet Room are making interesting music, but not all of them may be as commercially viable as Drop The Fear. The creative, emotive mixing and sampling on this album, conceived after the band interviewed a series of strangers about their hopes and fears, results in airy, ethereal electronica that's dark without being depressing. Sarah Marcogliese's vocals, woven into the offbeat, pulsating instrumentalism provided by Gabriel Ratliff and Ryan Policky, are reminiscent of the likes of Moloko, or a new wave version of the Sneaker Pimps. Drop The Fear successfully manipulates the mood of the album on "Edge of the Universe" and "Hot Upstairs," making this a progressive CD worth repeated listens."
