Reptar sound stuck halfway between the theme song to a Brat Pack rom-com and an insanely catchy Matt and Kim jam -- and trust us, we mean that in the best possible way -- pairing the refined pop sensibilities of an '80s synth act in the vein of Duran Duran (or dare we say Hall and Oates) with the earnestly goofy love anthems of the aforementioned indie duo formed in a Brooklyn basement. What else would you expect from a band hailing from Athens, Ga. that's named after the Godzilla-parodying lizard monster from the 'Rugrats' children's TV show?
Reptar are the new champs of Diffuser.fm's Sound Off. The voting margin was close, but in the end, the indie pop outfit's funky tune 'Orifice Origami' beat Metric's latest single, 'Youth Without Youth,' on the battle that launched Monday. Today, the group's winning song goes up against Lower Dens' 'Brains.'
Congratulations are in order for alt rockers Metric, who are Diffuser.fm's latest Sound Off victors. The Canadian band overtook the Cribs with their new track 'Youth Without Youth,' which appears on their forthcoming LP 'Synthetica.' Today, Emily Haines, James Shaw, Josh Winstead and Joules Scott-Key will take on electro indie poppers Reptar and their new track 'Orifice Origami.'
