Dark post-punk and propulsive new wave find a happy medium on this new track by the Miami band.
Billed as a blend of indie rock, chillwave, and dance pop, Miami band Krisp actually mine classic new wave on the taut "167", a track from their new album Sonic Monarch, which comes out on 15 January. It's as if the leanness of Joy Division collided with the ebullience of New Order.
"Part of the album process involved tweaking each of the songs' speeds to see where they grooved best," says singer/guitarist Juan Ledesma. "'167' is the fastest song in the album, we kept referring to this song as '167' for its BPM."
