Buzz Alert: Dance-Rock (or Pop?) from Brooklyn: argonaut&wasp

Buzz Alert: Dance-Rock (or Pop?) from Brooklyn: argonaut&wasp

Hailing from the land of Phish, Ben & Jerry, and Bernie Saunders (Burlington), and now based in (you guessed it) Brooklyn, self defined Dance-Rock duo argonaut&wasp has, in the past year, released a series of catchy singles that have been very well received by the community of internet pop seekers. The band infuses their EDM with elements of funk and soul, and a refreshing dose of unpredictability. They recently headlined the Knitting Factory on a Friday night, which must mean something. Latest single "Cigarettes & My Beautiful Wife" (streaming) might not be an ode to night club adventures (the main lyrics are "I went to bed last night with my beautiful wife..."), but that doesn't mean it won't make you (and your date) dance. Their most popular single is "Higher Ground" from debut EP "Future Protocol," out earlier this year.
