New name, same great taste. We've been alluding to our involvement with Giantess for a while now, but now it's time to make it official. Next up from Neon Gold will be the Boston pop behemoths' "Tuff N Stuff" and "You Were Young" in what is yet another double A-side release for the ages. Due to some copyright issues stemming from a previously existing Giantess in Canada, we've had to change the name to Yes Giantess, but worry not - the tunes are still as massive as ever.
Following in the footsteps of Passion Pit with an even more synthed-out electro sound, Yes Giantess are the next great hope for electronic pop in the US. Produced by Passion Pit's own Ayad Al-Adhamy at his Bo Flex Music studio, they're unleashing some of the biggest pop jams you'll hear all year. "Tuff 'n Stuff" is their masterwork, leading you in with a deceptively plaintive intro before dropkicking you in the jaw with a metric ton of Ratatat-sized synths and huge pop choruses. "You Were Young" stuns on the AA-side, all spiraling synths, infectious hooks and a seriously ill bridge that sounds like Daft Punk on a sugar high. Yeah, they're pretty much the sonic equivalent of flying down the yellow brick road while its raining ecstasy and skittles, and yeah, you're gonna want to taste this rainbow.
Limited to 500 copies and pressed on sexy white vinyl, the record is available for preorder now in the US from the Neon Gold Shop and in the UK exclusively from Puregroove, due to ship out on April 20th (and here you already couldn't wait for 4/20). "Tuff N Stuff" and "You Were Young" have already been kicking around the blogs for a minute now, but here's a shit-hot exclusive remix of the lead track courtesy of Boston DJ crew Pirate Stereo to tide you over.
