Tomboy’s “Roll Out” Is Another Synth-Pop Standout For 2014: Watch

2014 has been a great year for new synth-pop, from Allie X‘s soaring “Catch” to X priest X‘s uplifting “Sophie K” and a bevy of new acts without an “X” in the name. And now we have another addition, with Brooklyn duo Tomboy.

Sarah Aument and Will McIntyre’s debut single “Roll Out” (not a Ludacris cover, that would be “Rollout”) matches tribal-flavored fills and a yearning, wordless vocal melody with a synthetic four-on-the-floor pulse that pumps liquid-mercury synths. The result is a punchy and assured piece of dance music, made even more impressive when you realize it’s from their forthcoming self-titled debut EP.

The “Roll Out” music video premiered today (April 16), so check it out below.
