France’s Krono have a soulful, retro-flavoured winner with “Perfect Strangers” featuring PIOTR

KRONO and PIOTR, “Perfect Strangers”

The French brothers that recorded under the name Krono had a viral favourite particularly in Europe a few years back with their remix of Aaron Smith’s “Dancin'”.  After releasing an album and receiving plenty of support from most major DJ’s, Krono are back via Tipsy Records with “Perfect Strangers” from the upcoming album The Kid Life.  These lads are classically trained and know how to keep a melody moving.  And with great help from singer PIOTR, the song has major 90’s/00’s retro appeal with a soulful voice that takes cues from Jay Kay of Jamiroquai and Adam Levine.  Add a dark and mysterious undercurrent to the song and “Perfect Strangers” should have know trouble making lots of friends in due order.

“Perfect Strangers” is unpredictable danceable rock from L.A. duo @FederalEmpire

THE FEDERAL EMPIRE, “Perfect Strangers”

Following the success of rock/dance bands already in the public ear like X Ambassadors, L.A. duo The Federal Empire provide an intoxicating, unpredictable mix with “Perfect Strangers”.  The duo has terrific pedigree too – it’s Carolina Liar’s Chad Wolf along with Grammy-nominated McKay Stevens (who doesn’t know 2014’s “Atmosphere” by Kaskade??), and they’ve already recorded notably with both Martin Garrix and Sam Feldt.  Don’t let the crowd-chanting start of “Perfect Strangers” throw you – before the first minute is out the fine vocal begins, full of genuine longing for that relationship that never was.  This leads you into what might be All-American Rejects-inspired retro-alt.rock (Canada’s Marianas Trench also comes to mind) combined with the melodic synth power and guitar blend that recalls Avicii’s big records.  The crowd-chanting does reappear but by then you’re sold and wanting to singalong.  The Federal Empire definitely has their collective ears to the ground and knows how a big audience might react to their songs.  “Perfect Strangers” is one crackerjack 3 minute tune that’s bang-on for radio, and dance clubs will enjoy it too.  Listen intently at the link above.
