Brooklyn-based Tanlines makes dance-worthy pop gems. Recently, the duo of Eric Emm and Jesse Cohen released their sophomore effort, Highlights.
The new record came to fruition when the duo’s computer accidentally broke. Emm and Cohen were forced to abandon their typically digital composition method, and recorded organically instead, using guitar and drums. That decision was a blessing in disguise; the result is a collection of tropical pop and natural electro-jams that sound more closely aligned to the duo's dynamic live shows.
Tanlines recently stopped by Studio A to play us some of the new songs and they discussed their new record.  We’ll hear that performance and conversation during this episode of The Alternate Side in Session.
