Dandy is a synth-dance creator from the USA who will be releasing her début LP DandyLand in March.
From time to time I come across music I know that my co-founding partner of the original site would have particularly enjoyed, so a moment of pure indulgence for Julie who died on the 30th of September 2011 at the age of 39 – and whilst far from standard fare of this site, I found myself smiling wistfully reminded of Julie Norbury as her eyes would have twinkled through beaming visage at the sound of White And Black Keys by Dandy.
Hold your partner close and smooch with White And Black Keys – now – even one minute delay may be too late to ever do it again.

The Rungs is Mandy Gurung (Guitar / Vocals) and Diwas Gurung (Guitar / Synth) a synth-dance duo from Ithica in the USA.
It is difficult not to be immediately drawn to references of the synth bands of the early ’80s, yet The Rungs sound as fresh as a daisy. Even on live performance the duo manage to deploy two guitars, the synth and vocals. It is the melodic interplay between the two six string guitars that enables the duo to deliver so much within a simple format.
The warmth of the synth floats through tracks around which instruments and vocals curl, raising a smile and a sense of well-being. In addition to the ’80s there is also a discernible reference to Newar from Nepal, which adds a sense of a folk theme running through the tracks. A newly released three track eponymous EP just doesn’t go on long enough as once you hit play you just want the mood to extend for more than the twelve minutes of the release.
I look forward to hearing more of The Rungs in short order. For those who are more local, they can be found regularly playing live.
