Letterist's 100MPH is our Song Of The Day!
The video for Letterist’s single 100MPH has finally hit the Internet, and it’s just so darned awesome that we had to make it our Song Of The Day! Turn the volume up and hit that play button. You’re going to want to hear every delicious bit of audio pumping out your speakers!
Just who the hell are Letterist? If you’ve never come across Letterist before, you’ve been missing a treat. The Brooklyn-based threesome excel at pulsating, passionate synth-pop, and they’re made up of singer Pamela Bell, drummer Alex McCown and guitarist/pianist/synth maestro Rammy Yogendra.
Why do we love this? Because it starts off with that shimmering synthy Pet Shop Boys-esque intro and quickly introduces a deep, persistent bass that gives the song its sense of urgency. Pamela’s vocals just lift the whole track into anthemic territory. And then there’s that video – Pamela being chased through the streets by her bandmates (who are bizarrely attempting to kidnap her – once you join this band there’s no going back, obviously).
You’re going to want to hear more from this band, so like them on Facebook and tell them you love them on Twitter. As with every band we feature on our Song Of The Day series, we encourage you to spread the word about these acts. Seriously. Get as many people to watch the video above – word of mouth is still the most effective way to share good music!
100MPH is the lead single from Letterist’s second album, Solace & Gold. The album was recorded with Tim Monkiewicz (Golden Pony), mixed by Abe Seiferth (DFA Records) and mastered by Jamal Ruhe at West West Side Music.
