NAVVI – “Perfect Speed”

That first hum just pulls you in. The glittering synths and guitar remind me of Washed Out, but the vocals of Kristin Henry darken them up really quick. I’ve grown very fond of floaty electro-pop. And Seattle duo NAVVI are flying high on a black cloud. Enjoy.

18 Days to Bonnaroo: Haerts

Love a Bonnaroo band that I haven’t featured yet? Shoot me a message telling me of their greatness. Enjoy.

Bonnaroo Tip of the Day: Make the most of your time on the farm. Never say to yourself, “I’m going to go take a nap.”

Haerts – Saturday, June 14, 3:30 P.M. – The Other Tent

Similar Bonnaroo Sounds: Chvrches, Broken Bells, Warpaint

Haert – don’t ask me how you say it – is an electro-pop outfit hailing from Brooklyn, New York. In 2013, the band released Hemiplegiatheir debut EP, containing tracks with slick grooves, strong vocals, and smooth melodies. Songs like “Wings” remind of the slower, wispier cuts from Haim’s Days Our Gone. On a personal level, I don’t overly gravitate towards acts like Haerts. I prefer poppier pop or more experimental electronic music; Haerts seem to be somewhere in the middle. Note: I do intimately love the bass line on “All the Days.”
