Pixel Memory

Sometimes, when life gets to the rough and tough, you just need to dance. And next time you bust a groove, you might consider doing your thing to the new track "Night Colors" from atmospheric San Francisco synth-pop act Pixel Memory. While the name might suggest chiptune flights of fancy or glitched out electronica, what we have here is less bitpop and more 80's-inspired ambient electronica. Cyberpunkish synths cascade down while vocalist Lisa Greyson floats above them, singing in a sexy, cool register that brings to mind the lush, ambient sounds of Karmacoda and other similarly chilled-out Bay Area electronic acts. With a self-titled EP set for release soon, (co-produced by Mark Pistel, best known for his work with NYC electronic project Hercules and Love Affair, as well as unmeasureably influential group Meat Beat Manifesto) we're definitely excited to hear more music from the group in the future.
