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

BAND & THE BEAT (FEATURING TRACY SHEDD)

Folks, our very own Tracy Shedd and yours truly have a new project called Band & The Beat. To start, we've taken some of Tracy Shedd's hit singles from her career, and we synthesized them; meaning, we are playing them with an analog synthesizer, electric piano, a drum machine, and electric guitars. Rest assure, we've got a number of brand new tunes in the Dream Pop Perculator, as well as plans for an October Tour! There is no pre-programmed sampling going on here, folks; this stuff is coming at'cha' 100% live! Take a listen below, and stay tuned to this site, as we will have more to report out about Band & The Beat soon!
