Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Drama in Greece, and Southampton, UK, respectively, band members Annie, Daphne and Scott collectively make up CLT DRP—the unknowing rebuttal to rehashed punk, f*cked up social notions and modern, illiberal backlash.
A chance pairing of perspectives in the haven for nurtured ideas that is the UK’s liberal capital of Brighton has lent CLT DRP the right to scream freely since 2017. Somewhere between EDM inspired electro-punk and quasi-satirical female pop, their sound and message resonate beyond expectations wherever they are, with the band told by literary icon Margaret Atwood after their first show, “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.”
Having met in University in Brighton in 2017, CLT DRP have already made a huge impact on the local scene while garnering interest across the rest of the country and further afield. Since their first release, ‘Merry Go Round’, the trio have honed their sound, growing in confidence with each step.
Drawing influence from musically-diverse acts ranging from The Prodigy, ho99o9, and Death Grips to Meshuggah, with a splash of Peaches thrown into the mix for good measure, CLT DRP’s following is as broad as their music. Wherever they play, audiences are blown away by the energy and intensity they bring to their live performances.
