NEW MUSIC: Memoryy – Electric City
by Gregorio Vincent
One Wham! obsession, a move to Brooklyn, a keytar tattoo, and five years later, Shaun Hettinger set his sights on crafting chillwave synth-pop in his project Kitten Berry Crunch.
Memoryy is Hettinger’s newest musical evolution. Retaining the core of Kitten Berry Crunch’s line-up (Adam Magnan on percussion, Dan Morosi on drums, & Sean Silva on bass), Memoryy ditches the tongue-in-cheek synth-pop for the sharp indie futurism found on their brand new Electric City EP. This is an album based in 1983 but written for 2013 – Equal parts Afro-pop, disco funk, electronic and ambient, the five tracks here create a sprawling musical journey for fans of Empire of the Sun, Twin Shadow, Passion Pit, Cut Copy & Phoenix.
Electric City was produced by Attiss Ngo & Davd Vasallo, and featuring the mix work of James Benjamin (Purity Ring).
