2013-2014 - hiatus
April 2013 - Out of the forest, The Sky Drops finally step back into the light with "Let It Sound," a new pulse-exploding track that expands into a sonic frontier only the bliss-lusting gods could delight in.
"Let It Sound" is the first of several new songs to be released throughout 2013.

Big Takeover Review: "Dynamic and enchanting, Delaware’s The Sky Drops fashion a sweet tapestry of garage, psychedelics, and shoegaze. I’m talking the real stuff here, the good stuff. The swervedriving lush swirls of heavy noise. But the shadows are only there to keep the songs grounded, because melodies fly high and rhythms push up against the harmonizing vocals until all is full of sound. These songs from Rob Montejo, ex of Smashing Orange, and Monika Bullette are almost instant classics, but timeless. This music is now, pulsating between ethereal glory and desert rock. Sometimes catching like a collision between Loop and the seasick swagger of My Bloody Valentine. This EP, which is only disappointing because it’s too short, ends with the slow paisley dream of “Together-ing”, and I’m left feeling complete, but wanting more."
We are a part of Rock Back for Japan Vol. 5!

When the Sun hits have profiled Custom Made Music - the fine people who will be releasing our new EP "Making Mountains" this Spring.
The Sky Drops are happy to announce their holiday single "Christmas Feels Like Halloween" is now officially available for purchase!
This dark little darling first appeared for a limited time only last December as a secret download.
Unlike previous offerings, Rob and Monika conjure their unique wide sound using acoustic guitar and vocals to bewitching effect.
In anticipation of their forthcoming EP, shoegaze rock duo The Sky Drops announces their new psych inspired single, “Explain It To Me".
With something of an air of BRMC meets 60s Stones, “Explain It To Me” is a caustic romp in slithering fuzz pop.
Recorded in November of this year, the drums were tracked in Monika’s living room. Everything else was recorded and mixed in the old garden shed Rob calls “the studio".
