“Whenever I listen to SSP I’m struck by how danceable it is while at the same time seeming to move at a glacial pace. It’s a heavy song that seems to have it’s own special gravity. I knew I wanted to film things falling, flowing, and exploding in slow motion to match the huge washes of guitar and bass in the track, and I was fortunate enough to have access to a RED Epic video camera to shoot this project at 250 frames per second, slowing reality down to about 1/10th its normal speed. Although there is digital compositing and animation in this music video, none of what you see is computer-generated. For the painted body effect I constructed a paper mache sculpture of Drew and poured dozens of cups of paint over it, then animated the figure in After Effects to sync with Drew’s body movements. This was a really rewarding creative project to work on and I think we were able to create something bizarre and beautiful to fit the spirit of Drew’s record.” — ‘SSP’ Director, Dustin Timbrook
Twenty-three year old Birmingham, Alabama native Drew Price is a wholehearted pop artist. His music doesn’t demand anything from you, but it offers everything. Since 2008, he has self-produced three full-length albums that have been distributed and shared for free via the Internet.
He prefers to write and record alone, and his music reflects that. Drew’s music represents the post-Internet era of personality conflict and identity crisis.
After engaging with his music, you will find a genuine understanding of something universally desired: good pop music.
Montevallo, Alabama’s Happenin Records will be digitally releasing his newest full-length album “Friends and Family” on September 10. “F&F” is severely catchy but full of emotion, offering psychedelic interpretations of shoegaze, rock, dream pop, and house. If you give it a listen, you too will find yourself in the midst of an identity crisis.

Praise For DPBT:
“Drew Price’s Bermuda Triangle has delivered an enthralling fuzzed out single with “SSP.” He reconstructs the idea of pop music with the track and fuels it with an ocean of distortion that gives the song an isolated feel” — Prefix Magazine
Skewed ultra-melodic psychedelic pop music”–Vice [UK]
“Devoid of all but the most simplistic and submerged vocalizations, “SSP” tosses quick streaks of bright synths across a desolate backdrop, drawing in curious listeners before collapsing abruptly inward. This may not be pop as we know it, but Price has opened up whole new worlds to get lost in.” –Consequence Of Sound
“These are the sounds that lurk at the back of your mind, a mish mash of half-forgotten tracks melded together to create something different and challenging, beautiful at times and worrying at others.” — The Pigeon Post
