The band’s enthusiasm for their music is apparent throughout their recordings and videos. Releasing their first EP in March 2012, ‘Double Drop’s’ self-titled album features four tracks ranging from heavy drum and bass vibes in “What You Do” and “Free Again” before transitioning to smooth jazz and electronic elements in “Passing By”, even presenting a hip-hop heavy jam in “Rise Up”.
