Drop Nineteens is an American Shoegaze band from Boston. The 5-piece group started out in 1990. And while their initial stint was short-lived (with the group splitting after just five years, in 1995) the alt-indie groups’ fans were pleased to learn of a reunion. Twenty-sevel years after their hiatus they dropped the album Hard Light. And now? The quintet has released a muted and romantic shoegaze version of Lana Del Rey’s “White Dress”. 

As is indie-shoegaze tradition, the vocals are low in the mix, and dreamy distorted guitars crescendo slowly towards the finish line. From the ethereal backing vocals to the idyllic, pure delivery of the lyrics, Drop Nineteens; version of the vulnerable ballad is an impressively natural-sound genre swap.
