It isn't surprising that so many pop superstars are steadily obsessing over Transviolet
. The Los Angeles four-piece captivated a wide range of audiences with their sleek, self-titled debut EP back in 2015, including Harry Styles and Katy Perry. With irresistible tunes that are purposefully monotonous and highly danceable all at once, the electro-pop underdogs are the perfect combination of Sia and Halsey. Their new six song extended play, Kaleidoscopes,
is a standout summer release featuring low-key banger, "The Hamptons," which proves socially conscious pop music doesn't have to be boring.
Lead singer Sarah McTaggart described the video for "The Hamptons" as "blurring the lines of luxury and madness," and somehow that feels like an understatement. The song isn't shy in its playful critiques of new money and the cringe-worthy culture that goes along with it. In a bizarrely aesthetically pleasing disaster, the video dials that concept up to eleven (at least). Lavish lifestyles are shamelessly destroyed, as if money wasn't an object. Even the videos classiest characters deteriorate by the end of the video, throwing food and jumping into the pool of a spotless Hamptons summer home fully clothed. Honestly, I wouldn't be mad if this video was adapted into a short film.
If the beautiful mess of "The Hamptons" is any indication, Transviolet is going to throw one wild party at Baeble's next Bands + Brews event
of the summer.
