After spending the last few years trying to find his sound, the 22-year-old indie electronica artist, Geoffrey Toussaint now has a sonic signature well-worth flaunting. Especially if his trip hoppy alchemically modernist track, Sun & Stars, is anything to go by.
The Washington DC-based artist takes inspiration from Porter Robinson, SOPHIE and Ramzoid, but with the robustness of new wave hip hop and the visceral gravity that flows through his hyper-pop proclivities, Sun & Stars is anything but a feat of assimilation. Through the oscillating reverb laced around the robust percussion and deep throbbing basslines, it is as cathartic as it is innately exhilarating.
Sun & Stars will officially release on May 20th; you can check it out for yourselves here.

Review by Amelia Vandergast
Indie, Rock and Pop combine together to create the newest single ‘’The Secret Recipe’’ by band Jetlag Girl. A perfectly eerie and strange track that completely shows the listeners just how good Indie-Pop can sound.
A track where the instrumentation can tend to overpower the vocal aspects, but one that just gives it that right amount of edginess and that’s exactly what this band have. The overall sound and style of this track is mesmerising, the rhythm becomes fairly distorted in places and it gives off this chilling feeling, but the crazier and more weird it begins to sound the more you get hooked on it.
The vocals are pretty amazing, their pretty plain and simple but that’s what completely makes The Secret Recipe a hit in itself, it’s great to hear vocals where it simply just sounds superb, there doesn’t have to be any major changes in sound or affects, it just comes out as it is and that’s what makes this track stand out as that’s something you don’t tend to hear a lot anymore.
Jetlag Girl are an absolute must to check out, their mysterious sound and style is one not to miss, can’t wait to see what they get up to next!
Head on over to SoundCloud to check out Jetlag Girl The Secret Recipe for yourselves now.
