Cop a free download and hear a stream from new Swiss electronic pop band Kamikaze—today’s double-header premiere. First, allow us to make introductions: Kamikaze are Fabio Pinto, Claire Huguenin, Jeremias Keller and Alexandre Maurer and together they make horizon-skimming pop from an arsenal of analog hardware. Like many bands operating today, their influences are broad—including Jon Hopkins, Bowie, The Knife, Angelo Badalamenti, James Blake and the weirder realm of jazz, to namedrop a handful. Still, the way they reconceptualize these touchstones within their immaculate collage-pop feels refreshingly effortless. We predict big things.
The full, exclusive stream of the Beta EP is above and if you like what you hear, hit up the free download of “Tomorrow”.
Kamikaze’s Beta EP is out May 23rd, 2014 on Mouthwatering Records.
