TRACK OF THE DAY: BAND & THE BEAT "21"

Stereo Embers Magazine features Band & The Beat's debut single "21" as their Track Of The Day!
---
““21” is a darkly sparkling, driving and drifting dream-pop noir opus that is mesmerizing and mood-altering. A fast-ticking beat and Motorik bass-like line runs through most of the track, creating a propulsive, nocturnal ambience. Globular synth notes are dropped on top, along with distortion-spangled synth notes and Tracy’s slightly disembodied vocals that float at the forefront of the instruments.” ~ Jen Dan, Stereo Embers
