It’s about that time of year where all the music blogs are itching to write their year-end lists, and this is one of those examples why it’s best to wait until the last minute. Technically, Beverly Hills duo MADE IN HEIGHTS put out an album about five months ago but I’m just coming across them with the recent release of “Death.” And really, what can I say about this other than I haven’t been so excited about a musical act since the emergence of 2013 stars CHVRCHES, Haim and The 1975. In fact, MADE IN HEIGHTS could be described as a mix of the unique production of Purity Ring mixed with the pop stylings of the aforementioned CHVRCHES.
In summary – THIS MUSIC IS INCREDIBLE. Even trying to compare it to anything else is a disservice to the sound. Sure, it might not be very professional or critical of me to gush like this but honestly, if this band doesn’t blow up in at least some way in 2014 there is something wrong with the world – and you know I don’t say that lightly.
Listen below and listen to everything else on their Soundcloud page. Seriously, whoa.
