It’s tempting to give artists the silent treatment when internet bios are intentionally sparse, but in the case of elusive New Jersey soloist, Blood Cultures, it’d be plain rude.

Put simply, the debut offering from the synth-pop artist is just too good to miss. Opening with groovy, palm-muted guitars akin to what we’ve heard so far from Jai Paul, ‘Indian Summer’ quickly journeys into explosive synth-pop territory.

Off-kilter, vacuous vocals climb pentatonic scales on top of brash – if not a little cheesy – synths that nod to Europop. It sounds more like it’s been washed up on the shores of Sweden than New Jersey, no more than a pebble stone’s throw away from Stockholm’s Iamamiwhoami.
