This month's star players, bringing dance floor decadence: Top Secret Robot Alliance
are a dance duo made up of Dion Thünder and Lucious Sandstone. They do not dance because they have to. They dance because they want to. #choosedance. The comedic dance punk duo you need in your life - one part Spinal Tap, one part Flight of the Conchords, wrapped up in danceable dance beats that will definitely get you dancing on the dance floor with your dance friends. But also... make you think? From the minds that brought you DANCEMAS: the song... we proudly present DANCEMAS: the dance party. This holiday season... Choose Dance.
Blending the synthscapes of '80s film scores with contemporary indie pop, SF synth duo OVRGRWN
is richly atmospheric, sweetly melodic, and frequently willing to tap into dark contagious beats. The group's songs captivate listeners with immersive production techniques and singer Danae's serene yet commanding vocal stylings.
Alice Knows Karate
is a fairytale & J-idol inspired alt pop project by San Francisco native Keiko Takamura. After performing as vocalist in her previous group Crashfaster, she went on to create a new sound. Drawing her lyrical inspiration from indie video games, fairy tales, and her own life experiences, working with producers to build the music around vocal tracks she wrote and recorded, the Fablewave EP and her more recent singles delve into an ambient, dream-like synth pop soundscape.
