ALMOST MONDAY TEAMS UP WITH SOFI TUKKER FOR “BROKEN PEOPLE” REMIX
Jul 18, 2020
Alt-pop trio almost monday have teamed up with GRAMMY-nominated Sofi Tukker for the remix of their debut single “broken people”.
almost monday (vocalist Dawson Daugherty, guitarist Cole Clisby and bassist Luke Fabry) have already racked up impressive stats with nearly 2 million Spotify streams and over 653k views on YouTube following the release of their latest single “come on come on,” the energetic and genre-defying track “parking lot view” and “broken people,” which was met with praise from multiple indie outlets.
The Kollection called “broken people” an “indie-pop single showcasing Daugherty’s powerful vocal abilities aside groovy guitar licks, disco strings and a rhythmic bass line,” and the UK’s Indie Midlands said, “The Bruno Mars-like pin-sharp funk melds with a cornucopia of sumptuous MGMT-esque synths. The Indie-rock sensibility remains at its core but it has a layer of good-times and beach-party bristling on top.” The band tapped Sofi Tukker for the remix to put a throbbing, ‘90s house-inspired jungle pop spin on the track.
almost monday’s debut material artfully mines such influences as David Bowie, Gorillaz, Justice, and Prince while revealing the many eclectic elements that inspired them to make music: Cole’s passion for rock (sparked in part by attending countless blink-182 and Foo Fighters shows as a kid), Luke’s longtime love of The Beatles, and Dawson’s childhood exposure to seminal alt-rock bands like U2 and The Smiths. The band instills each song with the same unstoppable exuberance they bring to their onstage performance.
