Brian Suarez, aka Allies, blends synth-pop and über dancy electro in a masterful way that produces instantly memorable tunes. Allies’ EP was released just this past March via iTunes and Suarez also dropped a mixtape last month featuring the likes of Florence and the Machine and Röyksopp. “Oceans” is a catchy synth tune that will appeal to fans of OMD and Underworld, while the Thade remix we premiere today strips the song down more to its essentials, converting into something more like blippy, glitch electro-pop.
