Rainbow Arabia – “Without You”

By Amrit Singh / January 17, 2011

Rainbow Arabia is Danny and Tiffany Preston, the L.A. couple that’s released two EPs and a split 7″ to date, their border-crashing interpolation of Western pop sense in global electronic-beat backdrops impressing consistently, and visually, and remixually. Their first full-length comes with the playfully luxe title Boys And Diamonds, a press release touting comparisons to Shabba Ranks, Giorgio Moroder, Desmond Dekker, Madonna, Tom Tom Club, Congotronics, and Chris and Cosey, and a winning audio preview in the form of “Without You,” which is a proper, earworming pop jam if you’re out for variety in your synth patches and percussion.


Boys And Diamonds is out 3/1 in the U.S. (2/28 in UK/Europe) via Kompakt.
