Now for ‘Something New’ from Brooklyn-based Secret Weapons.
Gerry Lange and Dan E. met in mathematics class and in 2014, they started making music together in secret until it was time to launch the duo that is Secret Weapons.
With influences from the ’80s, including Tears for Fears, Hall & Oates, and Cyndi Lauper, ‘Something New’ is a combination of electronic sounds from a former era with catchy indie pop that would definitely be classed as current.
We are also looking forward to the Haerts‘ remix of ‘Something New’, which will be out shortly.
Sounds like: The 1975, Lionel Richie, The Levity, The Island Club, Ghost Beach, Backstreet Boys, LANY, Great Good Fine Ok, The Knocks, Dagny
Rive is an unsigned electro indie pop duo comprising of Ceri (electric guitar and vocals) and Natascha (keys, vocals and sample pad).
The girls met in London over a mutual love for songwriting and sangria, and instantly formed a sister-like bond. This bond has helped the girls create perfect harmonies in ‘Sleepless’, which also has a slight 80’s, Cyndi Lauper-vibe to it.
Rive gained the attention of the Roundhouse in 2014 through their 30/30 initiative, which pairs the best unsigned and emerging talent with established producers. Their debut single ‘Sleepless’ was co-produced by innovative electronic artist, Tim Exile, and the result has seen Rive invited to join Roundhouse’s exclusive Resident Artist roster.
They made the music video for ‘Sleepless’ with LA director Josh Harms, and it is released on 10 August, with the support of the Roundhouse and Dyne Road Recordings.
