Indie Current mainstay Retro Culture might be the best thing since sliced bread. Time and time again he’s proven himself to be one of indie-pop’s best kept secrets. And if it were up to us, it would remain this way. But like every proud mother, we must eventually come to terms with the fact that he will grow up to be the successful musician we so dearly want him to be. When that does inevitably happen, we hope that he will remember this moment—the moment he finally achieved pop perfection.
With “Thread,” Retro Culture has taken a big leap forward. The shimmering, sun-kissed pop record is an instantaneous hit, striking the perfect balance between upbeat and memorable. Combing his playful melodies with the summery sensibilities of his pervious efforts, it’s sure to leave you feeling lively and refreshed; just what we need for this impending heat wave we are about to experience.
