First it was Phoenix trying to be cool, and now it’s NYC boys Mainland claiming that no one is as cool as them.

Watching the video, the claim seems pretty valid. It appears that “don’t give a f**ks” come in a bright shade of yellow.

Strange Talk – Painted in Gold (Feat. Bertie Blackman)

Strange Talk

Strange Talk

Australian electro duo Strange Talk releases ‘Painted in Gold’ featuring singer/songwriter Bertie Blackman.

The track is about the band’s pursuit of their music dream, as told by Bertie Blackman’s lush vocals which effortlessly rocket the track sky-high to another galaxy, but we get the impression Strange Talk feel they are not quite there yet, as the weighty bass in the track attempts to keep the duo firmly on safe ground.

Strange Talk – When It Feels So Good

Strange Talk - When It Feels So Good

Strange Talk – When It Feels So Good

No longer a four-piece indie pop band, but an electronic duo, Strange Talk returns with new offering ‘When It Feels So Good’.

Describing themselves on their Soundcloud page;

“Strange Talk are the flourishing melodies heard behind rooftop conversations amongst strangers. They’re also moonlighting as the anthem to your club and festival night. That’s the kind of beguiling juxtaposition that the Melbourne duo, comprised of Stephen Docker and Gerard Sidhu bring to your summer soundtrack.”

‘When It Feels So Good’, is a combination of off key backing beats, typically found in French disco, and catchy Aussie indietronica.

It’s taken from their forthcoming EP ,which is due later this fall via Wind-up Records.

Sounds like: Great Good Fine Ok, Daft Punk, Miami Horror, Penguin Prison, Flume

Mainland by Matt Salacuse

Mainland by Matt Salacuse

Brooklyn’s own post punk band, Mainland, have released new single, ‘Outcast’.

We had a chat with them about all things music!

How and why did you start making music?
We as a band started making music because we love bringing people together, and having an avenue to channel our everyday life experiences.

Describe your sound in three words.
Nostalgic. Dark. Naked.

Where do you cite your musical influences from?
For our new record we drew influences from the likes of Depeche mode, the Cure, and The Cars, etc.

We love new music at Indietronica. What new music are you listening to?
Here’s a few albums we keep in rotation while on tour:

Black Messiah by D’angelo.
Just Enough Hip to be Woman by Broncho.
Alone with a friend by Talk in Tongues.
We are excited to hear debut records from our friends, Dreamers and Highly Suspect.

What are your plans for the future?
We’re currently working on a music video for our new single ‘Outcast’. In addition we’re developing new ways to interact with audiences in major cities by implementing curious and artful propaganda. Stay tuned…

We can’t wait!

The new album will be out early 2016 on 300 Entertainment. For now you can purchase ‘Outcast’ on iTunes.
