This is a tune for sure, and I feel terrible that I’ve let it gather dust in my inbox for so long. Get People has been lauded by folks who are quite a bit cooler than me – The Fly, XFM, Abeano, and Illegal Tender, amongst others.
Whilst their music may be easy to dismiss as being too familiar at first, a little exploration shows that they have a lot more to offer. It’s dance pop with an eye towards global rhythms and experimentation, rewarding multiple listens.
The band just did Isle of Wight over the weekend and will be playing a few more dates this summer. If you missed their double A-side Careless/Odyssey, they’ll be releasing an EP called Rain Tears on 11 July through Friends vs Records.
