Gothic Tropic Shares Disco-y Electro Pop

Gothic Tropic is an LA indie pop outfit featuring Cecilia Victoria at the helm. She’s been working on an album for the past year, and this track is the first single from that upcoming record.What strikes me the most about this track is the disco beat that kicks things off and then stays with you through the whole tune. “Drunk On a Rhythm” is the kind of tune you put on and dance away to in your house with abandon. Groovy bass lines, bouncy piano, magnetic electric guitar riffs, and silky smooth vocals take up the majority of the soundscape. As the track progresses, you’re met with a catchy chorus and little nuances that keep things exciting, like jazzy saxophone. Take a listen below and look out for more from Gothic Tropic.

SXSW Interview: Gothic Tropic

More SXSW interviews, all the time, all day, every day. As you can see, we are not messing around with the interviews this year leading up to the festival. I think Nathan and I have rather enjoyed seeing what all these bands have to say about our town and our festival. What I dig most about it is seeing the overwhelming amount of positivity each band brings even if they are on a long tour or a few days between a solid meal. Today I carry on the interviews with one from L.A. based Gothic Tropic. Hit the jump to see it all.

Soulful Pop from Gothic Tropic

Feeling a sense of longing for the weekend this morning, which is perhaps why the Gothic Tropic tune that hit my inbox is so intoxicating. It’s slightly playful synth pop with a soulful touch on the vocal display. It borders on the edge of dreaminess, but I feel as if there’s a sense of seeking something great that’s coming through my speakers. You’re going to find it hard to turn your ears away from this delighting tune, which will feature on the new album, Fast or Feast; it hits on May 19th via Old Flame Records.
