New Artist Alert - thanks.
The latest New Artist Alert on SA is thanks. - a duo based out of LA. The group, composed of Steve Pagano and Mario Borgatta, feature a sound that is reminiscent of MGMT, Foster the People, and even some of Cold War Kids' tracks. The duo met at Berklee College of Music (Joe Hicks, Tei Shi are also alumnus), and it was at this time they realized how similarly their minds were working, both in terms of musical soundscapes, but also in their goals - in and out of music.
This track specifically features psych-pop melodies, soaring choruses, and even a bit of funk as the song progresses. The upbeat, textured backbone of this song makes it perfect for nearly any occasion - but will be enjoyed most I believe while spending time outside.
Their debut album Colfax is due to come out in summer 2017 - so we won't have to wait long to see what kind of full length body of work they put together. If it follows the trajectory of their lead single 'Your World', we're in for a treat. Thank you to Lydia Reed for forwarding this beautiful track along to me - enjoy it for yourselves below, and don't forget to submit your own tracks for post consideration on Sonically Awkward!
