I’m impressed. Greatly. Sunglasses take highly infectious electro sounds and drop in dark, moody, yet nonchalant vocals in their song “Whiplash”. Calm and relaxed, the contrast to Sunglasses’ big beat electronic sounds is borderline genius. “Whiplash” is bizarre, but it’s fun — super fun. Sunglasses is the brainchild of Samuel Cooper and Brady Keehn. Influenced by a wide range of artists, from hip hop to 60’s pop, “Whiplash” successfully combines what the band set out to do: blend Samuelâ€™s love for pop songs with Bradyâ€™s obsession with bass and multi-layered beats. “Whiplash” can be found on the duo’s self-titled debut EP, out next week on Lefse Records.
