Electro Pop/Neo Disco
Last September, this four-piece NYC band released its sophomore record, Social Studies, and last month they dropped the Infinite Summer EP, dovetailing with what they started in 2011: sun-dappled, upbeat Pop songs with an electronic gleam. Bandmates Grant Wheeler and Matthew Young have obviously been influenced by Electro-tinged bands they’ve worked with, like Passion Pit and Young’s side band/fellow New Yorkers Vacationer. Leaving behind previously Disco-heavy tunes, Infinite blurs co-ed vocals with a downtempo and chillout vibe, especially on the clubby “Good Things.” Singer Angelica Bess gets more vocal duties on the EP, with her voice echoing LCD Soundsystem’s Nancy Whang. Summer may be coming to an abrupt end, but these guys keep the summery grooves going all year long.
