Pronounced Clit Drip for those confused or too shy to ask, CLT DRP have been turning heads since 2017. The genre-bending trio’s non-apologetic and yet playful approach has seen them garner praise from The LineOf Best Fit, Gigwise, and plenty more. Their music gets you moving, invites you in with power, and makes you question your environment and yourself. In their time, CLT DRP have already supported Nova Twins, Warmduscher, among others, and performed at 2000trees and ArcTanGent festivals.

The Brighton electro-punk trio CLT DRP have shared a powerful new single, “Aftermath”, dealing with themes of sexual assault and gendered violence, and the internalised guilt and frustration that can follow in the wake of sexual assault.

Vocalist Annie says: “Generational grief’s discourse within feminism is something that I don’t believe gets paid much attention to. There’s been so much progress culturally around the education of sexual health, consent and intersectional feminism while I’ve been growing up. Unfortunately even within that progress – it feels as though a lot of disconnect surrounding the victim blaming narrative has stayed the same.

“The onus continues to remain on the women to solve the problem of sexual assault / gendered violence and I notice that there is still a slight trace of resentment clashing between generations. There are all these conversations around how lucky my generation is that culturally, these topics are being spoken about and normalised in our lifetime.
