Byron Bay-based reggae / hip-hop group, Drop Legs, new single release 'Lizzy'

Following on from releasing their standout tracks ‘Criminal’ and ‘750 mL To Paradise’, Byron Bay-based upstarts, Drop Legs, have recently unveiled the brand-new sun-soaked single, ‘Lizzy’.


Taking cues from the likes of The Roots, Blue King Brown and Koi Child, ‘Lizzy’ shines a light on the group’s ability to meld an array of eclectic influences by combining themes of reggae and hip-hop; yet remaining cohesive in their overall delivery and finish of a song.

Forming less than eighteen months ago, the sextet has wasted no time in developing a strong work ethic towards touring; already traversing the East Coast four times and with a run of Indonesian shows presented by Sailor Jerry. Along their travels they’ve also managed to share the stage with the likes of Sticky Fingers, Ocean Alley, Opiuo, Boo Seeka and The Bennies. 

“You can hear the ethos and influence of StiFi with Drop Legs but they've taken this sound and done their take on it very nicely. I can imagine this one getting a massive response live."
Dave Ruby Howe – triple j (AUS)
“Drop Legs are (or are damn sure about to be) everyone's favourite coastal chill/hip hop/reggae sensation. They're smooth, clever and funky, and you need them in your playlist."
Erica Mallett – FBi Radio (AUS)

‘Lizzy’ is available now via Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and all other good digital retailers
