Hailing from trendy Brooklyn, NY, the quirky male/female duo consisting of Kalmia Traver and Alex Toth released their new dream-pop single as a teaser for their August 24th album release, titled Sun Machine.
The first time I heard this seductively lush song was about an hour and a half ago on my local radio station while driving in tedious morning rush-hour traffic, and it must be made known to all.
Diverging from their typical upbeat sound, Rubblebucket experiments with intimate whisper-like vocals and a hazy soundscape reminiscent of Alphaville's "Forever Young," but in a classy and non-cliché way. They inject relaxing synth-work with a catchy and rhythmic snare; juxtaposing slow with energetic. The song's impeccable recipe is perfect for soothing an enraged driver stuck behind a truck hauling manure, among countless other situations.
