I’ve been waiting on pins and needles for a second song from Melbourne’s Kult Kyss after the project reeled me in with their vivid and eccentric debut Get Up Boy. The duo finally return this week with their sophomore single Water Baby, a tribal pounding burst of dynamic sonic euphoria. Exotic enthralling future pop and blissed out dancehall vibes abound on this edgy concoction. Water Baby’s spindly vocals and sprightly spirit are like a fusion of Niki and the Dove, Kate Boy, and Sylvan Esso. You can grab the pair’s fine second single from Toneden, here.

From Washington, DC comes a production and DJ duo made up of Wave Age and Bisbeaux. Together, they call themselves Cerulean City, bringing together blissful house and electronic pop on their radiantly synthy music. On aptly named new song Sensual Seduction, they bring a dreamy dance sound both gently bouncing with deep bass and fluidly smooth with feathery vocals. As the duo’s name suggests, Sensual Seduction is indeed a cerulean hued song, washing over us with serene, intoxicating waves of sparkling beauty. The summery song is free to download, here.

London electronic producer Flako remixed London minimalist pop duo Cloud Boat’s beautiful, mournful song Youthern. The end result is a little more lush and even more electric, bordering on James Blake-like post-dubstep feel but with a little more deep house pronunciation and a touch of darkwave witchiness, though the original track already had some of that flavor. The original edit of Cloud Boat’s sparse beauty below. Both are amazing.

OFFICIAL VID: Parks, Squares and Alleys – Youth

For some warm, summery synthpop vibes and a sound that will hook you right from the beginning, check out Youth by indie pop band Parks, Squares and Alleys. The moment I hit play I already knew it was a must share. It’s a super dreamy, blissful, hopeful song by the obscure act out of Russia. Youth is a shoegazy, mega pleasant listen.

I managed to dig up a little more music by these guys and they seem to stick with that comforting, airy sound. I’m left wanting more from these guys and hoping to learn more about them.

Waste of Time

May 15, 2013

Rising Danish synthpop musician MØ dropped her first single off her forthcoming debut album, which is going to be a sure pre-order for me. Waste Of Time showcases her hypnotic vocals, but has a brighter, more lush and explosive feel than some of her other songs thus far. There’s far more of a guitar heavy sound on this one.

In the meantime, the addictive and fantastic Pilgrim has racked over half a mil views.

Awesome! Rising NYC electropop duo MS MR remixed Danish pop musician MØ’s excellent track Pilgrim and made it a bit more an airy and light ballad. MØ immediately caught my attention back in February when I first heard Pilgrim. Both of these acts are on my acts to watch list, with MS MR making tons of ripples already lately with their debut album Secondhand Rapture dropping on May 14.

The remix is great, but can’t compare to listening to the original edit of Pilgrim:

OFFICIAL VID: ASTR – Operate

Introducing another wonderful new indie synthpop act from Brooklyn (so many, so many)… Here’s ASTR! Operate is ASTR’s smooth debut single, and it immediately resonated with me when I hit play. There’s an 80’s vibe to the echo filled and R&B flavored future pop track. It’s definitely a hook filled track and I’m curious to hear more from ASTR! The fresh on the scene duo is pretty mysterious and enigmatic. 

The little bit more they have showcasing on their short soundcloud catalog is pretty freaking infectious stuff too. Here’s Razor and Goodnight!

Brooklyn (by way of San Francisco) dreamy synthy pop band Lemonade have a brand new song for us titled Perfect Blue. It’s not off their 2012 album Diver, but is a continuation of the sound they embodied on that disc.
