Background:

Based in North County, the drabs call their music "slack rock/clandestine pop." Rough recordings date back to 2006. In addition to songwriter/guitarist David Bernat, the drabs lineup once included bassist Chris Torres (the Grass Heat, Kris Allen Band) and original drummer Scotty Myers, who relocated to the midwest in 2008.

Their debut full-length ponto, released in March 2012 and recorded by Ben Moore at Big Fish Studio, features guest musicians Matt Pivetti (formerly of the Richter) singing on four tracks, and Moore playing Hammond B3 on “Hide From Me.”

As of 2015, the lineup was David Bernat, bassist Steve Clark (Hot Snow, HCOPS), and drummer Mike Stone (Demise O, the Grass Heat, the Roosters).
