New Music To Know: Drop City Yacht Club Mixes Something Old, Something New

Rejection is a hardship everyone goes through, but California-based trio Drop City Yacht Club manage to make it sound fun. The group’s latest single, “Crickets” featuring Jeremih, is a soulful throwback to the Motown era, with sultry piano features playing off smooth raps that detail the reality of being rejected by a girl.

Drop City Yacht Club is made up of Kristo, A Wolf and THX, who up until six months ago were known as the Freshmen. As band members said goodbye to their old name, they recently decided to drop a free mixtape ahead of their full-length release later this year.

“All those songs were a collection of songs that we did as the Freshmen,” A Wolf told of the mixtape.

Kristo further explained that the mixtape, aptly titled Ode to Freshmen Year, was a send-off to that portion of their careers.

“Those were the songs that defined us as a group,” he said. “We released them as singles… [but] it was nice to finally put them together and send them off in a tiny tugboat of a package.”
