Astronaughty: Try Much Harder
If you were a fast fan of Hot Chip, Metronomy and the ‘am I happy or sad?’ vibe of Gorillaz’ bittersweet "Up On Melancholy Hill" you’ll want to slip Astronaughty’s just-released single “Try much harder” into your ears. Charlie and Sam, the near-twins behind this fresh electropop track were raised on the French Touch in their respective homes in Paris and London. They met at NYU Tisch’s Clive Davis talent hothouse, and have woven a distinctly stateside, urban, dancefloor beat through their lush harmonic melodies. Well worth a listen again and again.
