What is a musical act without an excellent live show? With an electronic revolution on our hands, artists are pushing the boundaries of performance to stay ahead of the curve. Enter Allies For Everyone, the New York-based group blending ’80s synth-pop and forward-thinking deep house with a live show that will melt your heart. I recently got the chance to check the duo out for their Scavengers EP release party and was absolutely blown away. Brian Suarez’ voice works perfectly in a live setting, complementing soulful grooves and warm synths that keep a crowd moving. These two don’t need crazy visual production or flash to have a good time as the music does the talking for them.
The title track on Scavengers is ultra-cool; a new-school deep house bassline carries smooth vocals along the dance floor to max effect. It’s hard to even stop from bouncing while writing this. Another highlight of the EP is Supernatural, with bass that hits extra-hard and trancey synths that stab higher and higher as it builds. Get lost in the latest offering from Allies For Everyone, and don’t miss them if they’re playing near you; they’ve got a show at Webster Hall in New York on August 2nd!
