If the Beach Boys, Santigold, and Calvin Harris attended a weeklong beachside retreat, we imagine Misun would be the result. The Los Angeles-by-way-of-Washington, D.C., band—who met while working at a restaurant—will release their debut album, Superstitions, tomorrow. In the meantime, you can stream it exclusively below.
Led by frontwoman Misun Wojcik, the band’s sound, which they dub as “aquawave,” is a toe-tappingly playful hybrid of ’60s rock, hip-hop, and dance. Wojcik’s crooning voice on “Goodbye Summer” tugs at our heartstrings with its bluesy nostalgia, while “Eli Eli” is groovy and spirited, with sprinkled-in elements of doo-wop and lo-fi. The title track “Superstitions” is an eclectic, thumping delight that utilizes glittery, soulful synths. “To us, it’s a culmination of bonding as friends and as a band,” the trio tell us about the album. “It’s a reflection of where we came from and who we are in the present.”
SUPERSTITIONS COMES OUT TOMORROW, NOVEMBER 11. FOR MORE ON MISUN, VISIT THEIR FACEBOOK PAGE.
