Slam Donahue is a pop band from Brooklyn, but with that said, you can dismiss most of your notions about what pop music is. In this case, we’re talking about undeniable, fun, contagiously danceable music that anyone would like.
“I Turn On” bounces with an infectious and organic excitement that’s reminiscent of The Black Kids, before everything went horribly wrong, and you’d be hard pressed not to make an MGMT reference on this one too (which is fine, because Slam Donahue is now on Cantora Records, the label that broke MGMT). And quite frankly, we could all use something like this right now. The track is off their upcoming EP Hemlock Tea which is out August 21.
If these guys keep making the right decisions, you’re guaranteed to be hearing a lot more from them. In the mean time, download “I Turn On” below.
