High-steppin’ dames with high-soundin’ names. There ain’t nothin’ they could show her.
The B3SCI Records alums POWERS stream first single from forthcoming debut LP for Republic. “Sunshine” walks a neat aesthetic line in blending current mainstream pop structures (that “Sunshine” “baby it’s true” hook has major crossover potential) with cool forward-thinking arrangement elements (that flute hook! the unexpected gospel-y bits, etc). We dig “Sunshine” and you can stream it below.
Previewed below is “Surplus”, the latest from Philadelphia artist Kenji. A component part of Kenji’s debut “I’ll Think Of Something Better” EP, “Surplus” floats a-top a wash of cooled-out post-Sade electronics and a humid summer’s night aesthetic. We are into it.
Out today on B3SCI Records is “He Sings / Wild” the new AA-side single from Liverpool mutant lot Trudy and the Romance. Consequence of Sound calls the band’s ramshackle modernizing of 50’s/60’s pop aesthetics & harmony as “oddly dreamy” and “stylish”. Further details and purchase info on the single can be had at B3SCI Records.
