Enigmatic New Jersey Pop outfit Blood Cultures is giving me the perfect amount of 80s synth pop and ’10s dream pop- literally living. Unfortunately I feel like this rainy and cold season is completely inappropriate. I should be listening to this at a pool party for people who are too cool to dance, or maybe on a rooftop at night where uninhibition rules. The latest track they’ve shared, Mercury Child, is an exploration into release and indulgence, a foregoing of over speculation for an emphasis on absorbing life. Previously released Indian Summer is another near perfect electro-dream pop track. It’s Washed Out meets Panama City meets MillionYoung meets everything pop outfits want to be now a days (often to no avail). Don’t sleep on these, it’s totally worth a listen. Or twenty.
