summersun by miami horror
started listening to miami horror when I was listening to Kimbra(who is so overrated now, it’s not even funny). The electro-beats combines with some funky vocals made them a really successful hit. Miami Horror is Melbourne-based indietronica four piece band. Their music slowly introduce to me to this unheard of genre, which later prepped me for some Flume and Cut Copy.
chained by the xx
the xx has been known as ‘the band with it’s own genre’, having the tempo and beats classified as emo and down-beat, however the lyrics, bass and electric guitar suggests that it’s more of a soft-rock piece. The xx originates from the UK and the band was formed in 2005 when Oliver and Romy were only 15.
