Is there any record label out there cooler than Future Classic is now!?! I don’t think so! Following a long line of successful releases recently from the likes of Flight Facilities, Panama, Mitzi and Flume comes the dream pop disco group SCENIC. It’s nice to hear some new music from the 4-piece outfit from Perth Australia, and with a new EP reportedly in the works, diehard fans are definitely very excited.
“Shockwaves” is the titled track off of this upcoming release and it is three minutes of chilled dance music fun. There is a nice retro-type vibe resonating throughout the song but a change of pace quality breakdown about two minutes in keeps it fresh and entertaining. The vocals are light and breezy and lifts the instrumentals off the ground giving me a feeling like I am floating around the room a bit. It’s a gravity defying fervor I completely revel in. Even though “Shockwaves” seems a tad too short lengthwise, a complaint I usually have with music I enjoy, it’s an admirable reentry back into the music scene. Chalk up another cool point for SCENIC and the efficacious Future Classic team!
