Anushka premiere “World In A Room” // Distorted Air EP // SXSW
March 7, 2014
Brighton-based duo Max Wheeler (producer) and Victoria Port (singer/songwriter) are a classic concoction of jazz-inflected heady dance floor thrills – modern Brit-soul at its best.
“World in a Room” combines their trademark groove driven dance music, with Victoria’s claustrophobic lyrics over infectious house chords.
While Victoria’s melodies bring the sweetness, the tracks have the low-end weight to please DJ mavens like Karizma, Brackles, Moxie and Annie Mac. The ‘Distorted Air’ EP – released on vinyl only on Record Store Day (19th April) – is full of songs on fractious romance, ever the well-spring of transcendent pop with sweet female attitude.
The band will be showcasing at SXSW next week. More dates can be found here.
