Bands You Should Listen To: Tanlines

Tanlines is a name I’ve seen on marquees and in magazines here and there but I finally fell for them when they opened for Passion Pit this spring. I’m crossing my fingers they’ll come out with something soon but I’m still playing their 2011 debut album, Mixed Emotions, on a regular basis.The Brooklyn electronic/indie duo is made up of percussionist Jesse Cohen and guitarist/vocalist Eric Emm, who met while producing a song for Emm’s previous band. Their songs border on upbeat indie jams and calming beach vibes with some different world music thrown in which is refreshing in this crowded pop-synth scene (try saying that five times fast).

Sounds Like: Julian Casablancas, Vampire Weekend, Future Islands

Gotta Listen To: All Of Me, Brothers
