A Song for Summer 2015, "The Future" by De Lux (New Album Out June 23)

It was love at first listen when I heard "Oh Man the Future," off the sophomore release Generation (via Innovative Leisure Records) by L.A. synth pop duo De Lux. It filled out a mathematical equation of fave bands LCD Soundsystem plus Talking Heads to equal the sound found in this fun, quirky song that just makes you want to get your groove on. Take a listen to my pick for the song of Summer 2015 on SoundCloud or below.

De Lux was founded in 2013 by multi-instrumentalists Sean Guerin (Lead Vocals/Guitar) and Isaac Franco (Backing Vocals/Bass) with a post-disco dance punk DIY aesthetic that presented itself in last year's debut album, Voyage. Their song "Moments" was featured on my Summer 2014 New Music Playlist and this new track will open this year's summer compilation after the album drops June 23.
