The Impersonators evoke campus radio nostalgia with ‘Scarlett Hell’

The Impersonators unleashed the ultimate perennial pop-rock earworm with the release of ‘Scarlett Hell’, just one of the soul-kissed tracks found on the duo’s debut LP, ‘Life of Grant’.

If you could imagine what it would sound like if Ricky Martin collaborated with R.E.M., you’ll get an idea of just how enlivening the timeless pop melodies in Scarlett Hell are. With funk-infused instrumental breakdowns between the choppy sun-bleached staccato guitar chords and the upraising vocals that are sure to evoke campus radio nostalgia, it is a serious contender for your alt pop-rock Summer playlists.

Scarlett Hell is now available to stream via Spotify.

Sunset-Strip-Sleaze and Sticky-Sweet Soul Collide in The Impersonators’ Latest Single “Rodeo”

If your playlists are crying out for a hit of funky, sexy Alt-Rock, you can consider the latest single from The Impersonators a playlist staple.

While it’s got all the efficaciously sleazy allure that you’d expect from any accoladed Sunset Strip act, there’s also an extra juicy element of amorously playful sentimentality which means that Rodeo will give your soul a prod to see if it is still alive as you get snared by the seriously lacerating melodic hooks.

The Impersonators may be a new name for the airwaves, but the talented duo behind the moniker definitely aren’t fresh from their inception. Tom Tikka and Antti Autio were formerly two important components of one of Finland’s hottest Rock acts, Carmen Gray. The same talent is exhibited, but a far more organic sense of soul is on offer. You just can’t help getting pulled into the dreamy Pop-laden melodies crafted by The Impersonators.
