If you're a fan of electronic-pop music, then you've got to hear Lungs and Limbs. The Occidental-based quartet, which formed in 2013, makes smooth, synth-heavy dance tracks with catchy hooks that sound startlingly similar to Swedish electronic band, Little Dragon. 

In "Less Ordinary," the first single off their to-be-released sophomore EP Big Bang, premiered here on SF Weekly, staccato drums meld with slithering synths for an upbeat, stripped-down, '80s inspired track that you can't help but dance to. Lungs and Limbs' guitarist, Nick Tudor, produced and engineered the song in the band's horse-stable-turned-recording-space, called Make It Work Studios, where the band's fall 2015 debut EP, Lifelike, was also recorded. 
With "Less Ordinary," the group wanted to create a "danceable, slightly dark, yet upbeat feel referencing Michael Jackson and other 1980's dance-pop as inspiration for the beat and tones," says singer Karina Rousseau, adding that the lyrics are about special relationships with people in her life. 

Catch Lungs and Limbs at Nick of the Woods at 9:30 p.m., Friday, June 17. More info here

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
