“We listen to music to understand what we do, and we do music to understand what we listen to.” Those are the words Italian electronic pop duo M+A, comprised of 19-year-old Michele Ducci and 22-year-old Degli Angioli, use to explain the “why” of what they do. The “what” result of that precept will be seen when their debut, Things.Yes, is released November 8th by Monotreme Records. CoS has an exclusive preview of the effort with the premiere of the album cut “Yes.pop”.
Cool and airy electronic chimes plink over a fusion of clipped rhythms to create the dreamy yet danceable atmosphere of the track. Chopped vocals from Ducci and instrumentation from the pair keep it catchy and fresh, illustrating why the band has drawn comparisons to established acts from Phoenix to Panda Bear. Check the track out for yourself just below.
For a further sampling of what to expect from the young duo, head over to RCRD LBL to hear the track “Liko Lene Lisa”. Things.Yes is out worldwide on November 8th from Monotreme Records and will be available on CD, LP, and as a digital download. The complete tracklisting is below.
