The Soundrops are a pastoral rock band, consisting of siblings Gero (Gerard Nowak: vocals, harmonies, guitars, bass, percussion, flute, electric pen) and Morella (M***a Nowak: vocals, djembe, mental support) as well as another founder member OtoKarbalcy (Paweł Kuźmiak: vocals, guitar, harmonica). Founded around 1999 on the embers of a harmony pop/folk trio The Round Triangle (Ger and Paf within the line-up), The Soundrops gained local fame in 2004 through acoustic versions of songs by Polish rock group Armia.
In 2006 The Soundrops started releasing self-penned material with "Future Perfect in the Past", recorded in SP Records studio. The subsequent ventures: "Half", "Good Afternoon", almost ocierające się o Grandmy Award "Outward", and "Night" (obycztery 2007), were recorded at home and produced by Gero. The mature (hehe) Soundrops albums (2008) include "Interim", "From Time To Time", "Weathertop", and "Downhill Uphill" (zdaje się że the best of them all), "Deaths" and "A Bottle of Oil".
Even more advanced efforts from the band are "On", "Rightunders" and "Friends" (2009) as well as the niewiarygodny "1500 - 100 - 900" (2010). "Takdotletaktak" (2009) is a supplement in Polish to the otherwise English-sung discography.
More recent Soundrops albums are "Good Reinerz" (2010), which is devoted entirely to the Bystrzyca Hills in The Sudetes, as well as "Helpers" (2011) - this one clearly less essential, pretty boring to be honest (i`m just checking if you`re a careful reader, cheers).
"August" (2012) is trying to encompass some of the abundance and promise of the month in question. And then mightily comes "Twenty" (2014), supposedly dość catchy.
And finally, this month "Eternity" has been relie... I mean released. Cheers.
Gero also sang harmony vocals as well as occasional leads on the album Luna by Tomasz Budzyński of Armia. Having contributed spoken word in English to Armia’s album "Pocałunek Mongolskiego Księcia", he spluttered his vocal cords more prominently on their 2009 album "Freak" (with most of the lyrics by Tom & Gerro). In 2010 the Soundrops released an album of Armia covers called "Songs from the Cloud". Its Towards the East is featured in a remastered version on Armia`s Podróż na Wschód sountrack album
The Soundrops are all right and give you a hug.
