Hidden Gem: Golden Coast – “Comeback Kid” *Smooth Electronic Pop

October 13th, 2016 by | Electropop, Hidden Gem, Pop |

Golden Coast is officially on my radar with the release of their new single, “Comeback Kid”. The track sports the best of everything this duo has to offer: a dance-able beat, hooky leads, anthemic sing-along breaks and just the right amount of head nod; I LOVE it!

A little more on the band from their publicist:

Golden Coast conjures up its California namesake with danceable drums, sunny synths, verby guitars and just enough rasp in the falsetto to offset the levity. The duo made the trek from the mountains of Colorado and the San Jacinto desert to Los Angeles nearly a decade ago, met in college while producing and writing for various artists before finally deciding to team up and release a project of their own. Golden Coast combines the best of both their skill-sets: a mixture of electronic and organic instruments, tight production, and sanguine themes set to no shortage of instantly hooky melodies.

Golden Coast gives us another indie pop gem with “Comeback Kid.” The second single off of their debut EP set to be released in November, this track sports the best of everything the band has to offer. If any of the other songs on the EP are half as infectious, we’ve got a pretty good feeling about this.

These guys are hidden gems because that’s not their only great track I dig, “Recess” also shows off their smooth electronic pop vibes and I see big potential from this duo! I first discovered the LA-based duo last year with “Futurist” and was hooked. So check out “Recess” and “Futurist” below.

Hidden Gem: Hey Champ *Electronic-pop variety

September 13th, 2011 by | Electropop, Hidden Gem, Pop |

Shout out to Weapons of Audio for telling me about Hey Champ, a Chicago trio that has genre-blending sound with an electronic-base. Hey Champ actually has a connection to Lupe Fiasco and has gained praise from many other Chicago contemporary artists including The Cool Kids (featured below). However with the connections and work they have done with mainstream artists, their music hasn’t achieved the success they deserve.

Here’s a little bit about Hey Champ‘s sound which I got off their facebook:

The band incorporates influences from disco, house and indie rock, while combining the raw energy of Cheap Trick and the synth-heavy productions of Giorgio Moroder and Trevor Horn.

They do originals and remixes so for this post I will give you three favorites that are Hey Champ originals.

Tyson – Fight *80’s sounding arena pop/rock

For genre on iTunes, I put Awesome for this because after hearing it, you feel awesome or you think the song is awesome. Tyson‘s retro-futuristic sound is real catchy and I look forward to more from him. Download: Hulkshare / Mediafire

Shout out to BoomD who played “Fight” for me last week.

Introducing Artymove *Electronic Pop

May 29th, 2011 by | Electropop |

Artymove is a music group from Sweden that has a mix of sounds from electronic pop, dubstep and soul. In February, they released their debut EP, One Of These Days (DOWNLOAD), which included 3 tracks that have this relaxed enjoyable sound.

I actually liked all the songs and enjoy them more and more every time I listen to them. It’s the kind of music that grows on you if your in the mood for something relaxed.
