“It achieves that rare feat of defying any one sound or time…their most sensational release to date” – The 405“…

this duo mixes up a sweet pot of musical fusion…It almost feels like Chromeo and MGMT had a lovechild in the form of decade-defying dance ditty. – EARMILK

 

Brooklyn-based duo, argonaut&wasp, have returned with a brand new single and video, titled “Monacillo.” The new visual was directed by Brooklyn-based filmmaker, Patrick Elmore.

The duo also recently shared “Composure.” This was their first single in over a year, as well as their first release since their recent signing with +1 Records. The single has gained great momentum on DSPs, getting featured on Spotify’s “New Music Friday,” “Summer Party,” “Indie Pop,” “All New Indie,” “Indie Sunshine,” and “Feel-Good Indie Rock” playlists and on Amazon Music’s “Introducing: Alternative” playlist.

Obsessed with 70s fashion, 80s synths, and 90s culture – argonaut&wasp are a quirky amalgamation of indie vibes, alternative edge, electro dance and funk grooves whose music has been described as the perfect soundtrack to NYC.  Headed by Theo and Trey, the band has built an impressive live following. They play live as a four piece, combining raw energy with electronic soundscapes and kaleidoscopic projections in their performances. You can catch them on May 22nd when they headline Rough Trade in celebration of the release of their new releases.
