Wild Cub – Straight No Turns *Indie Synth Dance Pop

July 31st, 2012 by | Alternative/Indie, Electropop, synthpop |

Here’s a new song from a band that formed in November ’11. I found this song through RCRD LBL and saw the homies from Indie Shuffle beat us towards posting this by a day.

Wild Cub‘s “Straight No Turns” is a synth pop track that reminds me of the smooth indie synth pop sounds of Holy Ghost!, Capital Cities and Futurecop!.

Stream and download “Straight No Turns”.
