Some niches of dance music are renowned for bringing a smile to your face; just think of your favorite Gryffin tune. Over Easy have managed to find their own niche within dance pop, drawing on Gryffin’s vocal chops and organic sound while adding some bright supersaws and a resounding midtempo bass rhythm in their latest, ‘Neon Light’.
The tune begins with a rather Midnight Kids-esque, mellow set of verses, highlighting Heather Sommer’s vocals (which compare to her stellar performances on ARMNHMR’s ‘Hello, Goodbye‘ and LIONE’s ‘Glimmer‘). Perfectly timed supersaws, interspersed with perfectly manipulated vocal chops, introduce the chorus before it fades into another acoustic guitar-backed set of verses. By the time the second chorus comes along, you’ll be singing along with the titular line, “Could you be my neon light?”, and perhaps humming along to the vocal chops too.
Over Easy might not be a familiar name yet, but this superb release via the highly-reputed Proximity imprint is sure to propel them further into the melodic bass scene.
