If you haven’t heard of Kopps, stop everything that you’re doing and prepare to enter a better state of mind. Patricia Patrón, Kyle O, Andrew D. York, and Travis Johansen, hail from Rochester, NY and introduce us to pop as it should be- fun, electronic, and melodically addicting. The dance band may strike a familiar chord being a feature on Joywave’s track, “Tongues,” in addition of having Daniel Armbruster produce their EP, The Sound Of Music, which doesn’t fail the production value with the 4 track EP.
Their latest single “Dollas for Dimes,” is dripping with yummy synth goodness, and a catchy futuristic chorus that melts background noise, similar to their one worded anthem, “Dumb.” If you yearn for something a little stronger than catchy words, “Thermometer” would be the track that appeals for a variety of reasons. Patrón’s vocals, carried by loud, punchy drumming, is refreshing to the dance style structure and won’t make you overkill your dancing shoes.
