CLT DRP – pronounced ‘Clit Drip’ for anyone too abashed to ask – are a trio of electro-punk feminists from Brighton. Since the release of their 2020 debut Without the Eyes, they’ve been turning heads and battering lugholes with their unruly blend of abrasive riffs and tonally daring ring modulation effects cooked up by Scott Reynolds. 

“What we do nods to electronic sounds, but it’s got a punk attitude,” explains the guitarist, who was brought up on a melange of music drip-fed down by his older brother. Everything from Metallica and Guns N’ Roses to EDM seeped into his musical psyche.

Ellie Rogers

Since graduating university with a degree in English, Ellie has spent the last decade working in a variety of media, marketing and live events roles. As well as being a regular contributor to Total Guitar, MusicRadar and, she currently heads up the marketing team of a mid-scale venue in the south-west of England. She started dabbling with guitars around the age of seven and has been borderline obsessed ever since. She has a particular fascination with alternate tunings, is forever hunting for the perfect slide for the smaller-handed guitarist, and derives a sadistic pleasure from bothering her drummer mates with a preference for “f**king wonky” time signatures.
