The Ropes

The RopesNYC-based indie outfit The Ropes are vocalist / bassist Sharon Shy and multi-instrumentalist Toppy (known for playing drums with the guitar hanging around his neck). Notorious for their engaging lyrics, the dynamic duo has toured extensively throughout the US and UK, opening for acts such as The Bravery, The Used, Innerpartysystem, The Matches, and others.

So far The Ropes have released an EP titled Cry to the Beat and the full length album What They Do For Fun, produced by Nic Hard (The Bravery, The Church) and Toppy. Straddling the gamut between new wave and post-punk, both releases are worth listening, especially for fans of Garbage, The Raveonettes, and Poe.
