black city lights give it up

Well the holiday weekends over here in the States, the music machine is churning and it’s time to bring you some new music.  Today we’ve got Black City Lights, an electronic duo hot off the press from New Zealand.  Last March, the group released a stellar debut EP Parallels, and now they’re getting ready to release their full length debut.  In the meantime, they’ve released the single, “Give It Up.”  This dark track sounds a bit like Beach House exchanged their dreamy and melancholy sound for something more sinister, heavy synths replacing Scally’s guitar.  Fierce and anxious, singer Julia Catherine Parr belts from a dark place, crying out for freedom amongst a dark and foggy field of reverb, drum machines and electronic tones.  Check out the single below or download it here and look for the full album, Another Life, August 6th.
