My French Roommate EP release at DC9 6.8.17

Washington D.C. based quartet My French Roommate creates bedroom pop that draws inspiration from 70’s euro disco, 80’s synth pop, dance punk, and tech noir (among other genres). On their debut EP MFR (streaming), they combine three singles into one 13 minute long track. The record's sound progresses from upbeat and relatively pop (“CTRL”) to dark and psychedelic (“REPLICA”). Last track “LUV DG” even has clear garage rock influences at one point (with lyrics “love me like a dog” and “I wanna be your dog” drawing a connection to Iggy Pop and the Stooges), blended in or rather juxtaposed to an EDM bass line reminiscent of Daft Punk. The band will be releasing their new self-titled EP on June 8th at DC9 alongside Marc Monet and Furniteur. - Lilly Milman





New Furniteur single “Swimming” shows DC can synthwave too

The cover art has vaporwave aesthetics and the music is full of 80s timbres and nearly incomprehensible vocals; Furniteur’s new single “Swimming” is synthwave coming straight outta DC. The airy sounds and reverb soaked electronic drum hits recall the classic 80s dystopian pop sounds of artists like Depeche Mode and Gary Numan, but do so with a decidedly modern take on the vocal melodies. It’s good to see DC getting in on this national trend.

Here’s Furniteur’s “Swimming”, recorded in Petworth.
