It pays to stand out. Atlanta based musical ensemble Dot.s does just that with a dance track, “Lemons”. Taking inspiration from what they describe as, “massively unhelpful idioms and cliches passed down by older generations,” of synth-heavy dance music, “Lemons” is the perfect mix of odd but danceable music.
the song focuses on live instrumentation like percussion and vintage synthesizers and drum patterns created by a Cr-78 drum machine to make it very left of mainstream sound. The synths kick in and the beat grooves. It doesn’t stop. But you don’t want it either! The high falsetto vocals feel distant as if calling you out onto the dance floor.
Dot.s plans to release their third LP Long for this World sometime this summer.
