[Electronic] Wake the Wild – Body Language

Wake the Wild
Body Language

The three piece electronic band Wake the Wild are readying a new phase in their lives. With it comes their original single “Body Language” that shows off their crossover sound, one that blends retro sounds together with new wave popular styles.

“Body Language” is a poppy hit whose recognizable sound is akin to styles you’d hear in the 70’s and 80’s. It pays homage to those who came before Wake the Wild, while also takes those sounds a step further and infuses them with some more modern textures. This funky, fresh tune is a must listen.

Body Language is about an electric encounter on the dance floor. A lot can be said without words. Embracing our love for retro dance music, we were inspired by artists ranging from Michael Jackson and Mark Morrison to Disclosure and Kaytranada. This song is the start of a chapter for Wake The Wild.

[Nu-Disco/Soul-Pop] Body Language – Feel It [TMN Premiere]

Body Language
Feel It

Brooklyn based indie-disco purveyors Body Language first showed up on our radar all the way back in 2011 with their remix of Givers’ “Up Up Up”, again back in 2012 with “I’m a Mess” and last year through an impressive, disco-synth laden retooling of Great Good Fine OK’s “You’re The One For Me”. Today, the multi-faceted electronic quartet returns to TMN for the first time in 2014 with a funk fueled synth-pop listen, “Feel It” for an official TMN Premiere. The second single to drop off of an impending extended play Infinite Sunshine, due out August 12, “Feel It” takes shape under a rolling four-four kick and the kind of sprightly guitar riff you’d expect to hear penned by the legendary Nile Rodgers before bursting into a sun-ripened downtempo dance groover. Never have their chunky 80’s dance synths held such weight either, with an incredibly danceable lead synth and bass line wrapping the entire movement up with a lovely little bow, simultenously turning in one of our favorite original tunes from an intellectually danceable catalog. We’ve also gotten confirmation that Body Language is currently working on the follow up LP to 2013’s Grammar, which we can’t wait to wrap our ears around either. Stream “Feel It” above, and we’ll keep bringing you the Body Language heat leading up to the release of Infinite Sunshine in a few weeks.
