Weekday Wrap Up

Keep on reading to check out what some Impacter’s have been listening to this week!!

Marketing Director Shelby Doyle
I’ve been listening to a lot of Deap Vally lately. My friend saw them open for Band Of Skulls earlier this summer and said they were awesome, so I checked them out – They were right. They remind me of a time when there actually was such a thing as rockstars. And what more do you actually need than two babes completely rocking out? Read More…

SBTRKT – “New Dorp, New York”

London producer SBTRKT released “New Drop, New York” from his next album Wonder When We Land yesterday on BBC. The track borrows vocals from Ezra Koenig, lead singer of Vampire Weekend. The single has a significantly different sound from his self-titled debut album and instrumental EP, Transitions. “New Drop, New York” has more of a pop aura about it that is likely to be better received by the general public. Don’t worry though – that deep dancey beat we expect from SBTRKT still lingers in the background of the song.
