lordkelvelos This album came from out of nowhere and has been in constant play since it's debut. The sound quality is phenomenal and the hooks sink perfectly.

I'm happy to have just purchased the vinyl. Favorite track: Golden Moses.

One of my favorite albums of 2019. It's interesting I heard of this band through the network I reside in. Lucky for them, they don't have to be pigeonholed to a scene. I feel like they're Phantogram-good. Chicago's new blood is so much fresher than that retired-ass Wax Trax sound. Favorite track: Soft Peaks.

about

Heavy Handed feels like getting in on Chicago’s best kept secret. Rita Lukea, Jonathon Freund, and Tyler Ommen developed their debut LP over the past two years recording at Decade Music Studios and playing tirelessly at venues like Thalia Hall, word of mouth underground electro dance parties, and on festival stages. Rita opens the album singing “So come on baby walk through the door / I meant to let you in”. With Pixel Grip’s Heavy Handed it’s a synthpop paradise beyond heaven.

Rita’s dynamic, boundless voice guides Jonathon’s lush analog synth arrangements and Tyler’s tight, irresistible drum grooves to form a sound that transcends any one place or time. Heavy Handed melds Chicago house, French electronica, and Hi-NRG while Rita dazzles with strong, clean pop melodies dipped in eroticism which at times boil over into ecstatic otherworldly babble. “Soft Peaks” is perfectly at home being played at a European discotheque, and “Diamonds” makes them a perfect pair with bands like Little Dragon or Holy F*ck.

Catalog: FT-815
Title: Heavy Handed
Artist: Pixel Grip
Format: Limited edition LP and Digital streaming worldwide

Released on April 12, 2019 via Feeltrip Records

Press:

"Heavy Handed is their debut LP, and it’s a stunner. Not only do Pixel Grip have an ear for that aforementioned marriage of sugary hooks and shadowy analog synths, but they have an able grasp on Chicago musical history, nodding to the dreamier side of house music (“Body Like That”) and the poppier side of Wax Trax (“Can’t Compete”)..."
