From Atlanta, Georgia comes a synthpop sextet band with a fresh, groovy and beautifully lush sound. They’re called Culture Culture.
“…Culture Culture are a fresh-out-the-box synthpop band, and the latest project to satiate my 80s lust. While details of the group are virtually non-existent, with only two tracks available on their SoundCloud and Bandcamp profiles, they seem to be the kind of guys who let their feel-good music speak for itself. With nostalgic percussive elements, big, bassy disco notes and infectious guitar riffs, all permeated with a distant harmony of vocals, “Pouring Down” is a commendable first effort. And, with their first EP due out in the coming months, I’m looking forward to hearing more!” – Cracked Wax
Their latest EP is called ‘JX-3Please’ and is available on bandcamp, you’ll love it.
From the same city as Foals comes a 4-piece indie band with a fresh deep electronic sound, forging a path in guitar music that has gained the attention of the likes of ‘BlahBlahBlahScience’, The Guardian and BBC Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens.
“How to remain true to your original idea – to use space and silence as virtual fifth and sixth instruments in a bid to pare down R&B to its stark essentials – when you’re vying for airtime with the usual indie guitar bands on what are probably your natural homes, 6 Music and xfm? That is the question. Still, while we wait for Pixel Fix to answer, they’re making some quite stunning music” – The Guardian
