Abc Dialect – This Energy (Video)

“By the end of this year, each of us strength at the end. Project Abc Dialect has an amazing ability to communicate through music vibration of pure, unadulterated power. Their new single This Energy glaring example!”

“К концу текущего года у каждого из нас силы на исходе. Проект Abc Dialect обладает удивительной способностью передавать через вибрацию музыки чистую, неподдельную энергию. Их новый сингл This Energy тому яркий пример!”

Indie-pop outfit Abc Dialect return with their latest single “This Energy” on Casablanca Sunset Records.

The Argentinian duo, which consists of songwriters Luca Oliva Knight and Tomas Susevich, share their latest offering alongside a dreamy self-produced music video highlighted by introspective time-traveling, psychedelia and indulgent late-night encounters.

Sonically, “This Energy” features an afro-beat rhythm section paired alongside warm reflective synths, gentle pop vocals, smooth undertones and synthetic textures. It is a single best attributed to its danceable rhythm section building on aspects of Brazilian samba, poolside disco, and neo-futuristic pop.

Since their inception in 2017, Abc Dialect have established themselves as an emerging independent musical project. Influenced by the music of previous generations (90s house, 70s funk, soulful jazz, R&B, and more); the two bring a variety of unique and eclectic tastes to their original music. Having drawn comparisons to acts like Phoenix, Parcels and Benny Sings, the duo is most notably recognized for their electronic-tinged indie pop music that evokes a sense of smooth laidback euphoria.

In 2019, Abc Dialect traveled to Berlin to record with Daniel Nentwig of The Whitest Boy Alive where Nentwig co-produced the single “Stay with Me” which was subsequently released on the taste making Parisian label imprint Kitsuné Musique. Prior to “Stay with Me,” in June of 2019, the duo released their 4-song Real Life EP on the Casablanca Sunset label imprint. Both releases received praise from the likes of Délicieuse Musique, Indie Shuffle, Sidekick Music, Noon Pacific, International House of Sound, Acid Stag, Funky Panda, Disco Naïveté, Surviving The Golden Age, Riptide Mag, Tensnake, Bristol Funk, and more. The duo also shared Brooklyn-based producer LEFTI’s remix of their single “Magic” from the Real Life EP. This remix release received praise online from a variety of outlets including peaking at #1 on the Hype Machine popular charts in December of last year.
