The Dropout

Lead guitarist and vocalist Andrew Ficker from Nigel and the Dropout is straying away from the hip-hop/indie cross sound, and conquering the post-EDM pop side of music in his new solo project. Based out of Detroit, Ficker describes himself as “Post-EDM Indie Pop Hangover straight out of Detroit, and the lesser educated half of Nigel and the Dropout.” The Dropout’s music sounds lighter than Ficker’s previous project, with synths and steady beat tracks that sound dreamy and induce a similar endorphin release you get after feeling the warm sun on your skin after a harsh winter. Separating from the aggressive and harsh sounds his duo project produced, Ficker is changing it up and creating soft and groovy tunes to dance to.
