Biography

Wilmington DE, United States (2005 – present)

The Sky Drops are gaze-grunge duo Rob Montejo and Monika Bullette. This Delaware twosome unearth an ocean-size of sound — a superforce of a guitar, drums and vocals. “What a Loveless-era My Bloody Valentine kicking Elliot Smith from his grave would sound like (with a twist of lemon).” - Andrew - fan of The Sky Drops

Rob Montejo’s previous band Smashing Orange was one of the original American shoegaze bands, peers of Lush, Ride, and Swervedriver. Smashing Orange released 4 records and 2 singles (including UK releases), toured the USA, UK and Europe, and were signed to MCA Records. 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 the Bullette 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, Chairlift, The Dirty Projectors, A Place to Bury Strangers, and Spindrift, amongst many.

They recorded the five song EP Clouds of People in Rob’s studio. It was self-released under Fridabear Records in 2006 to critical praise. “The fuzz rock anthem “Now Would Be”, the sublime “Hang On”, and the pop stunner “The Go Go Go” are among the best tunes you’re likely to hear this year.” - The Big Takeover
