Goldroom, Ghost Beach & Carousel Light Up the Echoplex
Goldroom, Carousel and Ghost Beach absolutely rocked a packed house full of energetic hipsters. All three have a style each unique in it's own way. Originally apart of synth pop trio NightWaves, Goldroom of Los Angeles provided a laid-back disco feel similar to Poolside. It is perfect for the typical Southern California vibe and even though it is not summertime anymore, it sure felt like it when he was on stage. Below is my favorite track of his from the night. Goldroom - "Morgan's Bay": [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/16579026" iframe="true" /] Brooklyn based electro-pop duo, Carousel will soon become house hold names in the music industry. Their catchy and genuine sound got the crowd dancing their shoes off.This was the first time I have ever seen them live but certainly not the last. Check out my favorite track of theirs from the night that will surly be getting some radio time soon. Carousel - "Open Road": [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/36529912" iframe="true" /] By far the best performance of the night that I saw was that of Ghost Beach. Hailing from New York City, this tropical grit pop group provides an 80's rock influence with a modern day alternative rock sound. They were featured on our Best You Never Heard 7: Summer Underdogs mixtape back in August. This group is going places and I look forward to seeing them perform live again. My favorite track of theirs from the night is below. Ghost Beach - "Tear Us Apart": [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/playlists/1146503" height="200" iframe="true" /] As a whole, this show featured some great electro-pop up-and-comers that are worth taking a closer look. I cannot wait to see how they progress as artists.
