Seeking some grand balance between the audio and visual spectrums of their art, JT Mudd and Brad Dale, the duo behind electro-pop outfit Ishi, combine bright technicolor beats and pinpoint synths with an 80’s sense of pomp rock. Glistening guitar lines and hushed emotional vocals twist and merge with the elastic beats to form lines of kinetic energy, spilling out in waves from the speakers. Known for their elaborate and often overwhelming live shows, the duo makes music that seems to surround and immerse the listener in a whirlpool of surging musical textures. Ishi’s sophomore record Digital Wounds is set to be released on April 9th via Internal Records. Our first taste of Digital Wounds comes in the form of “Disco Queen (Radio Edit),” a shimmering, chest-thumping throwback to the dance-pop of the 80’s–complete with throbbing bass and warbling studio synths. Listen to “Disco Queen (radio Edit)” below or stream it at the band’s Soundcloud page.
Beats Per Minute is pleased to premiere “Disco Queen (Radio Edit),” the first track from their upcoming album Digital Wounds.
