Very little is know about ‘Cash+David’ as todays GIGsoup Track of the Day recipients are somewhat of an enigma. The London duo certainly know how to create extremely atmospheric electro-pop though and ‘Pulse’ is proof of that, if proof were ever needed. The follow-up to the equally impressive ‘Funn’ this track is should be gracing radio playlists the world over due to its addictive sound.
‘Pulse’, a five minute bass/house loop, was worked into a propelling three minute synth pop track with Eastern influences and pulsing guitars and synths. The western pop duo brought together a cluster of genres from world to glitch to pop to create this vibrant indie disco anthem. ‘Pulse’ is due for release 9th June 2014.
Cash+David release material exclusively online on their own label +, their first single ‘Funn’ released March this year received plenty of hits from blogs and tastemaker sites and was championed by Lauren Laverne on 6Music. It was accompanied by a video expressing Cash+David as two epicene dancers dressed up as Johnny Cash and David Bowie.
The trans-genre rebellious duo, complement each other with their different approaches to making beat laden experimental pop music. Cash is grammatical, adding sparkle and clarity to synths, locking rhythms and eloquently programming David’s scruffy, distorted, trashy guitars and Eastern world music patterns. The polarising duo aligned on discovering a mutual love of Bacon, Dylan Thomas and B movies, a partnership concreted by their shared birthday.
‘Pulse’ is out on the 9th June
