Hailing from Copenhagen, Retro Kid serve us with some irresistible electronic productions.
Self-described as “electronic pop in a melancholy funk”; and that description isn’t wide of the mark. Swinging in a place between indie-music-to-dance-to and electronic vibes, their work brings to mind the likes of Caribou, Hot Chip and Mount Kimbie. Their self-titled track, lifted from Retro Kid’s debut EP of the same name, is a wonderfully hypnotic, seductive electronic gem. It flits between contrasting textures of heavy fuzzy bass and shimmering glints of luminescent synth, over layers of mild doses euphoria and deep-house feint. More upbeat and dance-floor ready, ‘Kool Kids’ repeats the trick. Hypnotic, euphoric and captivating it’s pièce de résistance is the alternating vocals from the deep delivery of Christian Larsen’s to the heavenly, airy breeze of Christiane Kjærgaard’s voice. Assured and confident, and delivered with precision; this quartet will have you heading straight for the repeat button.
