Get to know Drop Legs


When did you first start making music and what led you there? We all met kicking around at parties and jams in ByronBay. About five years ago at a BBQ our vocalist Ham, who was into hip hop, met our drummer Jase who was a Reggae frother – then the band was pollinated by Antman (guitar), Timmy (bass), and Beanise (horns). 


Tell us about your debut album King Brown Sun Down. King Brown Sun Down means “enjoying a tallie at sun set”. Also at “The Wreck” – a well-known sunset hang spot in Byron Bay – there are heaps of King Brown snakes lurking in the rocks below, so I guess those two meanings are a metaphor for the music – there is a dreamy feeling of happiness in the music, with an edginess lurking below.


What do you love about making music? Hanging out with your best mates and creating. I also love the idea of making music that we are proud of and genuinely love – without any financial or commercial influence, and then releasing it and feeling like we are contributing to the realm of quality Australian music. 


How would you describe your sound and how did you come to it?Groove smoothies that get you feeling high. Comes from chilling hard and touring far.


What can we expect from your live shows? We enjoy going a little loco at live shows, getting in with crowd, jumping around and climbing stuff.
