Today’s new music spotlight is on Pelicandy.
Line-up: TC (vocals/guitar), Nick (drums) and Junior (bass)
About: Pelicandy make energetic and playful synth-driven alternative pop music. Their songs routinely push the boundaries of pop in search of their own shape while taking on the fibrous and earthy aesthetic of their basement studio, still frozen in time since the mid 1980s. Candid lyrical imagery is driven home by the unapologetically bold arrangements that set this four-piece band apart most notably in their blistering live show. Following on from the June release of their highly anticipated second single ‘Waiting Room’, they plan to unveil new music this autumn. Stay tuned.
What Hidden Herd say: Pelicandy’s glitzy electro-pop bangers capture the glamour and excess of sequinned 80s starlets, whilst nodding to a whole host of noughties-spawned favourites at the same time.
For fans of: Empire of the Sun, Phoenix, Metronomy
