The OXD Mirror: New Music for 8.23.13

Holy Models: 'Swimming'

Off the heels of the new psychedelic Cut Copy track a few weeks back, newcomers Holy Models are also getting some attention with their new trippy tune 'Swimming'.  The Adelaide-based band describes themself as 'chill wave daytime disco' which can definitely be heard in this first single, with a sound very similar to that of another daytime disco band, Poolside.  The song was inspired by a bonfire turned spontaneous naked beach party in their hometown.  Their self-titled EP releases on August 26th from Eskimo Records. Tesla55's upbeat remix of the song is also worth checking out, and is available as a free download.


RAC: 'Let Go (featuring Kele & MNDR)'

RAC, short for Remix Artist Collective, are best known for remixing other artists work, including The Gossip, Chromeo, Lana del Rey and Bloc Party.  Last summer they released their first original song featuring vocals from Penguin Prison, 'Hollywood', on Mountain Dew's Green Label Sound.  A year later, they're back with another original work, this time featuring vocals from Kele, the lead singer of Bloc Party, and MNDR, who has been featured on Mark Ronson and the Business' 'Bang Bang Bang' and 'Record Collection (Remix)'.  'Let Go' comes at an interesting time, as summer slips away and we're not quite ready to "let go" of these warm weather months.  The song's breezy vibe certainly isn't helping with that either.
