I’ll be honest, up until Clean Bandit popped into my feed, I have never really been a big fan of bandtronica/jamtronica. Acts like STS9 never really quite did it for me, but it seems that there’s hope for me yet.
I’d like to intro you to KOLAJ, a live duo from LA who has just dropped a fantastic indie dance number, ‘The Touch.’ The duo, consisting of Teesa and Mighty Mike have earned their stripes working behind the scenes in the Pop industry, which is quite apparent in ‘The Touch.’ The track itself gives off the impression that it will drop out into your standard Kygo-esque tropical house. Thankfully, it doesn’t.
Instead it’s more of a gentle indie dance driven by Teesa’s excellent vocals. The Touch has a unsurprising amount of pop sensibility, given the duo’s background, but that’s what makes it an enjoyable tune. Check out the indie/pop amalgamation below!
