Go Out For A Walk

Thomas Juvé and Floran Remy make up Le Common Diamond, a French pop duo who recently released their first full EP online. As soon as I heard the beginning of the first track, "Go Faster", it was obvious that these guys have pretty much perfected their self-proclaimed "space pop" - it's catchy, slick (without being generic), and it's lean. All 4 tracks on the EP could stand alone as singles, but if I have to choose one that I like slightly more than the rest, it's the closing song "Go Out For A Walk": crunchy, futuristic synth combined with smooth vocals and hook-laden melodies and rhythms. I'm really looking forward to what these guys do next.
  You can download the EP for about $2 (exactly €2) here.
