SONG PICK: Bestman – 143
Sure, music does not know boundaries and is also not restricted to certain areas to originate from, yet I was utterly surprised to learn that the joyous, bright and dance floor-ready “143” is the creation of a synth-pop band in Chicago!
Said synth-pop act is Bestman, and fronted by singer/songwriter Brian Clouthier, who together with his bandmates is located in one of the colder regions of the United States. Maybe that is the reason for the balmy track? “143” is reminiscent of the lush, big synth-pop sound of bands like St. Lucia or Strange Talk, and we gladly take some extra sonic sunshine any time!
