GL – “Hallucinate” (Stereogum Premiere)

Aussies Ella Thompson and Graeme Pogson are GL. The Melbourne-based synthpop duo makes infectious electric boogie rhythms with funk-tinged edges. They’re set to drop their debut album, Touch, later this summer. Their new single “Hallucinate” is a bevy of synth layers irresistibly intertwined with a whomping bass line and catchy melodies wrapped in a vintage dance aesthetic. Thompson’s pure, resonant vocal cuts through the layers of electro grooves elevating the simple repeated refrain and gets dreamy for the bridge breakdown with deceptively piercing lyrics. It’s an unfiltered dose of old school-leaning dance energy sure to get you moving. Listen.

Touch is out 7/15 via Midnight Feature/Plastic World.
