The Hisunz – CNTRDCTNS

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

CNTRDCTNS (โ€˜contradictionsโ€™) is only their second single, after last yearโ€™s Guilty Man. It combines the melody and creativity from the โ€˜60s, the attitude and energy from the โ€˜70s, and the โ€˜darkโ€™ and electronic elements from the โ€˜80s. A press release describes The Hisunzโ€™ sound as โ€˜The xx mixed with The Strokes with Johnny Marrโ€™esque guitarsโ€™. A rather spot on description.

The same is true for their new singleโ€™s title. It feels both youthful and nostalgic. The track juxtaposes Romรกnโ€™s emotion filled guitar hooks with Barberโ€™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 duoโ€™s upcoming debut EP. One to look out for!
