Sounds Like: A synth-powered new wave soundtrack to your late night 80′s themed hang.
Our favorite Santa Barbara, CA five piece is back with Dunes, their sophomore follow up to 2011′s near perfect self titled debut. Rather than hanging in the Southern California, the band traveled to frosty Michigan to work with producer Tim Goldsworthy on a collection of songs that pushes the band further into 80′s new wave territory. Pulsing synths, falsetto vocals, and gated snare back beats create a sound stylistically grounded in a past decade, but with the added benefit of 30 years of musical evolution.
