Mt. Si – Either / Or

Mt. Si

Mt. Si captivated our attention in 2014 with shimmering tracks “Oh” and “True.” While their identity was unknown at the time, it was recently revealed that the group is made up of singer Sarah Chernoff of Superhumanoids, Jesse Kivel of Kisses, and Michael David of Classixx — and now suddenly everything makes sense. Since realizing their potential as a trio, the dreamy three-piece “have been slowly chipping away at songs for almost four years now,” explains Kivel. “[We take] a relaxed and loose approach to the project, never settling until we have a great track has been one of the guiding principles.”

Their new single “Either / Or” showcases just that, and serves as a shining example of electropop at its most stylish and fluid. The track will be featured on their upcoming EP Limits, out February 5 on Cascine.

Superhumanoids – Norwegian Black Metal

Electropop trio Superhumanoids have offered up new track “Norwegian Black Metal,”  which is the second cut from their forthcoming album Do You Feel Ok?. According to the LA act, “the song is about obsession, escapism, and the power of something random to bring two people together — in this case the book True Norwegian Black Metal.” Despite the radical content of the book, the track itself is super dreamy, driven by lithe synths and singer Sarah Chernoff’s sugar-coated vocals.

Do You Feel OK? — the follow up to their 2013 debut Exhibitionists — drops September 11 via Innovative Leisure. Stream the new cut below and check out the dates for their fall headline tour,  which includes a stop at DC9 on September 30.
