New York indie duo Sarah Barthel and Josh Carter’s melodramatic electro-pop fusions have only heightened in intensity since their 2009 inception. Single ‘Fall in Love’ from second full length album ‘Voices’ (Island Records) is yet another fiery and dark, electronic disco infused track that plays with both body and mind with striking melodic hooks and imposing stuttering beats.
Fusing undulating synth and classical loops with Barthel’s sultry yet brazen vocal tones, this is a track awash with psychedelic energy and penetrating melodies.
A confident evolution since the 2009 debut album ‘Eyelid Movies’, this duo continues to cultivate a rare skill in layering full-hearted song writing sensitivity with bold, beat driven disco musicality that keeps the blood pumping late into the night.
