Tesla Boy – Strong

Tesla Boy by Jurij Treskow

Tesla Boy by Jurij Treskow

Tesla Boy is a Russian four-piece who divide their time between New York and Moscow.

Latest track ‘Strong’ is a soaring 80’s inspired anthem with guitar riffs Prince would be proud of and an infectious bass line Cut Copy would love.

“It’s really important to me to be a person who can make a connection between the cultures – western and eastern,” muses frontman and principal songwriter, Sevidov, about why Tesla Boy’s music has the ability to resonate with listeners. “I’m from Russia, and I travel all over the world, and I sing for different people from different countries. My mission is to unite our cultures. It’s very important for me.”

Tesla Boy remind us of Chromeo back in 2007 stirred up with a bit of Depeche Mode. The band is so quirky, it’s cool!

Brassica – Everything / Hayat Zor EP

Brassica

Brassica, an electronic producer from Tunbridge Wells/ London, UK, also know as makes luscious 80s inspired synth-pop and Italo using analog synths, vintage drum machines, and traditional instruments. His latest release; EP ‘Hayat Zor’, was out 18th November 2013, on Civic Laden, and is available to purchase here.

With breathy vocals and pulsating, sharp synths reminiscent of a Jan Hammer production, opening track ‘Everything’ certainly makes us think of the College & Electric Youth song ‘A Real Hero’, along with influential 80s outfit Bronski Beat.

The EP includes four original productions and two remixes of ‘Everything’ from Gavin Russom and Petrels.  ‘Hayat Zor’ is a collection on which emotional resonance and technical expertise sit side by side.

Below is an album sampler and a  version of ‘Everything’ with talk-over at the end from a radio play, so head over to Spotify to listen to the full EP, or buy from the link above.
