Reliably informed

Modern wisdom might tell you to overlook The Prodigy’s fourth album Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned. But you shouldn’t.  It’s great. Packed full of bangers, it really comes into its own on the two Juliette Lewis collaborations, which are filled with punk attitude, techno breakbeats and as much vocal force as you could imagine from a young star with a no-backdown-kind-of-attitude.   

Given their live sound, sassy attitude and strong stage presence, you’d imagine CLT DRP know a lot about the Prodigy and Always Outnumbered. Driven by disco and big-beat sounding drum patterns, and the fiercest of electro and synth sounds possible to get out of a single electric guitar (you should see the size of the soundboard and pedals), the electro/punk edge of CLT DRP kicks some serious behind. Led confidently by frontwoman Annie Dorrett, who prowls the stage, CLT DRP’s live show offers serious vocal intensity matched with a scorching punk-meets-electro sound full of screaming feedback and dancefloor textures. Standout Aftermath, and their untitled (and unreleased) new track stand out in a show full of edge, discipline and loud, aggressive noises. 

If you like edgy dance-meets-punk soundtracks, fierce front-people and huge racks of guitar peddles then this is for you.
