Best of Nashville Hip Hop/Electronic Acts: Soft Bodies and Truitt

Our Best of Nashville 2017 poll began last week with the Hip Hop/Electronic category and after you-the-people cast your vote, we have the results to share with you!

Overall Poll winner (Jurors vote + Readers' vote): Soft Bodies

Readers' Poll Winner (Readers' Vote only): Truitt

Both Soft Bodies and Truitt craft music that bores right down into the soul. Soft Bodies' dancy, psychedelic sonicsphere nestles right down into the subconscious. Mostly synth-based, their tunes set a mind and body to motion. Rhythm and melody meet in blissful arpeggiating crescendoes, weaved together with deep melanchology vocals that drive the songs forward. Soft Bodies claims the entire atmosphere of a space, setting a tone and collective motion. 

Truitt carries a more structured, pop orientation, influenced by electronic based pop production (take the newest Justin Bieber record, for example). The songs are symmetrical with traditional pop structuring and offer irresistable vocal hooks that seep into your head. Don't expect a uniform catalog of contemporary radio pop tunes with Truitt, however. Their songs offer a variety of production techniques and sampled instrumentation that shatter expectations and leave you waiting for the next one.

Honorable mentions go to Biyo and Jensen Sportag (tied for second in the overall chart) and PHANGS (second in the Readers' poll). The full list of nominees can be found under the streaming tracks.

Nightblonde has the cure for what ails you on "I Belong Your Arms"

Mid-May might not seem like the ideal time for moody new wave pieces, but clearly there's something in the air. Less than a week after Hit TV raised the bar for electronic throwback, Nightblonde has released the shimmery pop nugget "I Belong in Your Arms" in advance of the full-length Numbers due out in early June. Check out the song below, dig hard on the purple-black aesthetic the band is sporting, and watch out for that mighty fancy vinyl release due out with Numbers. -Austin Phy
