Speak: Gates (Ra Ra Riot Remix)
Austin Synth Pop band SPEAK have one of the best new albums out right now with Pedals. I love the album so much I named the guys BAND OF THE WEEK, and FM premiered their phenomenal single, "Nightlight", on episode 73 of my radio show last Friday, which you can hear in full below.
Another highlight off Pedals is "Gates", which is sitting at half a million plays on Soundcloud right now. While the track is already Synth heavy, Ra Ra Riot successfully unleash a mind blowing electronic overhaul which propels the SPEAK guys into an 8-bit video game universe far far away. The harmonies successfully stay in tact while they go about their dance party and the song still truly feels complete. This is what pop music will sound like in the future. I'm sure lead singer, Troupe, loved hearing this remix as he is a video game music composer himself. I plan to premiere this remix on We Found New Music radio this Friday night July 18th at 9pm PST. Happy listening!
