"Les Loups" by Slowdance

Slowdance, a Brooklyn-based quintet, have a penchant for edgy indie-pop and for crafting songs in French. According to the band, their moody, keyboard-heavy stylings were influenced by Blondie and ‘70s synth-wave, so it’s no wonder that here, they sound sultry and submerged in hypnotic, humming electronics. Frontwoman Quayar Quinn-Settel — seemingly mysterious and secretive, curtained by thick bangs — recalls a cross between Tennis’ laid back Alaina Moore and the dynamic Karen O. An intriguing vocalist and performer — beautifully delicate one moment, curiously detached the next — she is one of many reasons Slowdance is a band that’s hard to forget.

Slowdance’s latest EP, Light & Color, is out now.
