Holding fast to the belief that dance music can still be earnest, VESPER crafts pop music with bone-deep emotional revelations. Cinematic in scope and relentless in melody, VESPER weaves glimmering synths, bleeding heart vocal stylings, and cryptic lyrics to bring you the dance party of your wildest dreams. On April 16, the duo will be celebrating the release of their triumph of a debut, Years, with us.

ZIGTEBRA is a local twosome that cranks out pop music that's as spooky as it is sparkling — think Wednesday Adams' go-to dance jams. Held together by some gloriously gloomy force, the thread holding Zigtebra's songs together is one that you'll wanna get tangled up in.

BIG SYN is here, they're weird, and they're not apologizing. The left-of-center art-pop outfit lean into sci-fi themes, sunny synth beats, and crystalline percussion to breathe life into their ongoing sonic experiments. Their avant-psych aesthetic has never been more pronounced than with the new video for "Nice To Know Your Face." Turn on, tune in, and drop out.
