San Diego’s pop/electronic artist Nicky Venus is pulling out all the stops, stunning the masses with a string of singles inspired by a broken heart and his subsequent travels around the world. The EP that will come of this work, Little Runner, is something we’re massively looking forward to. We’ve got the premiere of the second single off that work, a well-formed dance track called “Off The Record”.
“Off The Record” has a soulful vibe to it, replete with deep, well-placed vocals. The 80’s synth feel with the 70’s inspired loop and modern club twist provides the perfect blend of both decades and genres, and we can’t imagine encountering an individual who doesn’t enjoy at least one aspect of this song. “Off The Record” almost feels like the next Chromeo smash hit – with a twinge of Bowie – and we are not complaining.
