The Hisunz – CNTRDCTNS

Dutch singer Emma Barber De Martino and Spanish guitarist Alejandro RomΓ‘n Calvo formed The Hisunz in East London. They wrote and produced their first songs with Emma’s husband Jules De Martino and Katie White (better known as The Ting Tings).

CNTRDCTNS (β€˜contradictions’) is only their second single, after last year’s Guilty Man. It combines the melody and creativity from the β€˜60s, the attitude and energy from the β€˜70s, and the β€˜dark’ and electronic elements from the β€˜80s. A press release describes The Hisunz’ sound as β€˜The xx mixed with The Strokes with Johnny Marr’esque guitars’. A rather spot on description.

The same is true for their new single’s title. It feels both youthful and nostalgic. The track juxtaposes RomΓ‘n’s emotion filled guitar hooks with Barber’s cool nonchalant vocals. Meanwhile, fast-paced electronic drum tracks make it almost impossible not to dance to this happy/sad tune.

Guilty Man and CNTRDCTNS will both appear on the duo’s upcoming debut EP. One to look out for!
