Silver Drop is the debut album by young Melbourne pop eccentric Gregor .The album is a personal opus recalling Arthur Russell, Durutti Column and Talking Heads.

Gregor was first heard via 2016 cassette Thoughts & Faults on Chapter Music, which Stereogum described as "Talking Heads meets Trolls." Playful and idiosyncratic, the tape was the work of an artist still learning how to open up.

Silver Drop takes the restless, inquisitive spirit of his music and applies it to his own interior emotional world.

The artist himself says "Silver Drop is the result of a yearning to free myself from lyrical inhibitions that, in the past, saw me disguise my thoughts behind timid metaphors and hide my voice behind poor mixing, obnoxious effects and low volumes." So alongside propulsive pop moments like This Heat or Fishing Net there are also deep, unsparing reflections like Revise Me, I'll Prove It To You and the album's stunning title track.

Silver Drop is a remarkable record, about as touching as anything you've heard, and similarly striking for its musical adventurousness.

Spacious and delicate, but peppered with acerbic pop moments and extended, loping grooves.

"Sly experimentation rearranges the drabness of reality into something ultimately intriguing" - Stereogum
