The Ropes are a New York-based duo that has just released their 2nd EP of 2009, Clubs in Europe Forever, produced by Nic Hard (The Bravery). Lead singer/lyricist/bassit, Sharon Shy and multi-instrumentalist Toppy, have been kicking around the fringe of the music industry for 3 years, but it is with this disc they’ve chosen to introduce themselves to you.
In a world where everyone looks to discover a band’s influences – let the Ropes explain to you their belief in “fractional idols.” And after having been signed to Warner Music’s (now-defunct) digital only imprint Cordless – let them tell you the tale of how they became “Professional Outsiders.”
And they’re hitting the road this Summer and Fall. Full tour dates below:
