Wednesday Is For Lovers - The New Up

Today's #WIFL selection does double duty as a concert preview. San Fran duo The New Up combine the angular, 80s-tinged jaunt of Dum Dum Girls with the densely layered neo-retro vocals of Beach House. Our first pick takes its inspiration from the cinematically sultry videos of Duran Duran, even as it smashes traditional gender paradigms in its portrayal of huntress and prey.

Next up we have the dreamy "Future Is Now", whose elliptical beat and geometric visuals will lull you into submission. You can experience the full range of The New Up's sound this Sunday, May 14, at Velvet Lounge.
