It’s been a while since I heard anything new from Get People, the London trio who make a kind of tropical pop. They have two new tracks up on their Soundcloud, which are set to feature on their new EP, Rain Tears. It’s being released on Friends vs Records on July 11th (with a launch party at The Old Blue Last which I’ll definitely be attending!). The two tracks below, ‘Rain Tears’ and ‘Away’ will be featured on the EP and retain the same elements that made me love Get People as soon as I first heard their music. Energetic yet cathartic; foreign and fresh yet strangely familiar, these are songs that endear themselves to the listener. The tropical instrumentation is similar to that used in earlier tracks such as ‘Deity’ and ‘Light’, but the production is tighter, showing that the band have developed over the past year. Listen to the new tracks below.

Today I stumbled across Get People, and immediately fell in love. It was a special moment.
Their MySpace describes their music as Pop / Tropical / Electronica , which actually just about hits the spot. They make light-hearted electro pop tunes, but the addition of jungle-like instrumentation takes it to the next level, creating songs that aren’t just fun, but memorable too. Watch ‘Deity’ below, and check out ‘Light’ on their MySpace.
