Brooklyns Body Language hit that soft and sweet spot between Warp Records-style electronica and retro-future girl groups such as Cultsbouncy 80s digi-drum sounds and breathy vocals from Angelica Bess, who counterpoints Matthew Young with her gentle, soulful singing. Its twilight disco-pop as suitable for speeding down an empty freeway as it is for dancing somewhere where things are shiny instead of sticky and nobody looks like they showed up by accident. Newest EP Social Studies showcases Body Language at their best: wonky pop melodies that Bess turns into magic. Also on the bill are fearless synth-wrangling locals Halloween Swim Team.
