Poolside – And The Sea

 

Los Angeles duo Poolside just treated us with a new summery gem, “And The Sea”. The band of Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise have certainly been known to all daytime disco lovers already, but if you haven’t heard of them, it’s now time to do your homework. Fresh, warm ocean breeze, that’s what best describes the new single. Delicate vocals floating through the tropical melody make it a truly summery tune that will accompany you, whether you actually are on the beach or the beach is just in your head. Chilled, positive, sunny vibes all around!

Plus, you can download it for free!

Fair Weather Friends – Love Won`t Make It Easier (Official Music Video)

 

Long, long, long overdue new single from Fair Weather Friends is finally out, and is accompanied with a video full of summer and positive energy. ‘Love Won’t Make It Easier’ is said to be introducing a second LP by the Polish electropop band, however no details have yet been released.

If you liked Fair Weather Friends’s first album, Hurricane Days, and songs like ‘Fake Love’, or the older classic, ‘Fortune Player’, you will be delighted to hear they haven’t dropped in quality one bit. Seamless combination of synthesizers, guitars, drums and a catchy melody, again proves to be more than enough for a successful dance tune.

The video also fits perfectly with the summery climate of the song. The band members are cycling through the French Riviera and the Alps in Austria. They decided to take up the challenge and test their skills on the Tour de France route – successfully! The video was shot by Mariusz Rychłowski and it’s dedicated to Eddy Merckx, one of the greatest bicycle racers of all time.

 

*Fair Weather Friends – electropop, dance band from Poland, set up in 2011. After releasing their first EP, Eclectic Pixels (2012), they quickly became associated with alternative music which links modern electronic sounds and some old school dance tunes from 70s and 80s. Band members: Mateusz Zegan, Michał Maślak, Maciek Bywalec, Paweł Cyz.
