Drop Out Venus

Share |

Drop Out Venus reside in Deptford, South East London, where they write and record music in their one-bedroom flat. Originally hailing from Bulgaria, Iva Moskovich, Chris Scott and Ursula Russell formed the band after discovering they all share a form of synaesthesia, which has lead to a wildly sensual approach to playing music, their musical education being most deeply felt somewhere between the whisky drenched piano of Thelonious Monk and the crazy hazy kisses of the Flat Duo Jets.
They are best experienced live – the last six months has seen them bring their intense and sometimes chaotic act to several venues across London and the South East, including the Roundhouse, Great Escape and Somerset House. Their shows incorporate the raw energy of New York in the late 70s and the honesty of the sawdust strewn floors of jazz era bars, all channeled through an eastern European ruggedness and mysticism
