IAMDYNAMITE return with their sophomore LP Wasa Tusa, out August 7 via Brando Records.
The follow-up to the 2012 debut album SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC, Wasa Tusa sees the Michigan-based duo of Chris Martin and Chris Phillips expanding their repertoire and experimenting in the studio to create a new brand of freewheeling pop.
“Our first record was more of a documentation of our live show,” explains Chris Martin. “This is our first record where the recording was the art form.”
Produced by Matt Novesky – who also produced the band’s debut record – Wasa Tusa features the sun-drenched debut single “In The Summer” (out now).
Today the band reveals “Be There” – the first track on the forthcoming album and an undeniable pop gem – exclusively via Earmilk (listen/share).
Drawing inspiration from 80’s pop pioneers such as The Police and Hall & Oates to early 2000 nu-rave revivalists such as Klaxons and Simian Mobile Disco, IAMDYNAMITE’s synth-driven rock and alt-pop hooks are as danceable as they are delicious.
IAMDYNAMITE will be hitting the road in support of the new record later this summer. Check out the tour dates listed below.
