Classixx preview ‘Holding On’ off forthcoming debut album
Los Angeles-based production duo Tyler Blake and Michael Davis (or Classixx for those of you who tend towards those sticky sweet nu-disco sounds already) have long been known for spot on remixes for Phoenix, Mayer Hawthorne, Passion Pit, YACHT — the list goes on. They’ve put out some original work, but only now have announced the impending release of their first full length artist album Hanging Gardens on May 14th. The first tune off the LP, “Holding On,” is about as shiny as they come. Classixx recruits all the best elements of a blissful dance track — a snarling bass, twinkly top line, strings, piano riffs, and heartbreaking vocal. It’s an Endless Summer, y’all.
