Fool’s Gold family Sleepy Tom and Anna Lunoe combine forces on “Pusher” to give festival‐grade dance music a sorely needed dose of magical realism. ST manages to grow exponentially more awesome as a producer with each new release, composing a crystalline jungle of synth builds and hooting percussion for “Pusher,” topped by a heart‐stopping, theme park‐worthy drop. Meanwhile, Anna provides soaring, moody verses that showcase exactly why she’s become such a stand‐out voice in a sea of homogenous electro. Together, this duo has managed to craft one of the most triumphant records of this young year. Keep on! Get “Pusher” now on iTunes and everywhere digital music is sold.
