first_imgPsychedelic-electro duo Bells and Robes have been keeping rather busy over the last two years. The group just came off a recent tour with DYNOHUNTER, and were all over the place in 2016 with Exmag, Modern Measure, Eminence Ensemble, and The Groove Orient, along with festival appearances at Suwannee Hulaween, Luna Light, Purple Hatter’s Ball, and more. Based out of Gainesville, Florida, via Atlanta, Luke Sipka and Dean Spaniol of Bells and Robes have just released their latest single, “Purple Shower,” to go along with the announcement of their new record label Zen Fresh Records.Bells and Robes Take Fans On Refreshing Electronic Journey In New Music Video With SwainWith the launch of their own label, the independent duo now has the freedom to create the music that inspires them. Zen Fresh Records also offers Sipka and Spaniol the ability to offer a platform for other up-and-coming artists of similar styles to join them and share their own music. “Anyone making psychedelic, soulful, future bass and electronica should definitely get in touch,” said Bells and Robes.Bells And Robes, MZG Remix The Heavy Pets, Just In Time For AURAWith a lush backdrop, smooth flowing synths, plenty of soul, “Purple Shower” features the duo at the top of their game and serves as a proper kick-off for the new label. “Purple Shower” derives its name from a lyric in the 1971 Shuggie Otis track “Strawberry Letter 23,” later made famous by The Brothers Johnson. As Spaniol and Lipka told YourEDM: “We’ve always been very inspired by the sounds of the 60s and 70s psychedelic soul artists like Shuggie Otis and The Temptations. We wanted to try to take some of the progressions and emotions those songs captured and add modern electronic and future bass elements. The result is our track, ‘Purple Shower’.”Check out Bells and Robes’ Soundcloud page, and listen to “Purple Shower” below:[cover photo courtesy of Bells and Robes via Shelby Spencer Photography]last_img
