All is right with the world. We are on the verge of another Pantyraid album release, and the superstar duo is set to embark on a nationwide tour. Now it's official, JT, they're bringing sexy back.
Pantyraid grew out of a friendship between Josh Mayer (Ooah of The Glitch Mob) and Martin Folb (MartyParty) nearly a decade ago. The partnership has resulted in two albums, 2009's The Sauce and 2013's Pillowtalk. The duo's M.O. has always been about sultry beats for the club. Not ones to be pegged down by trends in the electronic music sphere, Mayer and Marty have always focused on the intensity of the moment, and finding the precise right track to escalate the mood.
With a couple singles already making their way into the daylight, Afterglow is already appearing to be the pair's most ambitious project, to date. Covering a wild array of tempos, sonic flavors, and introducing a number of exotic voices into the mix, Pantyraid refuses to be pegged down to any one sound.
Today's premiere comes a mere two days before the album's release, and features the darkest blend of mood, tone, and desire. The throbbing groove of the darkwave breaks of "With You" underline the brooding clouds of doubt and jealousy that accompany any steamy romance. With haunting moans and a downtempo breakdown, the rush of adrenaline scores the bulk of this track is as hypnotic as it is intense.
With a soft tour opening a couple weeks back at the Do Lab's Coachella stage, Pantyraid tour kicks off in earnest next month in Louisiana, and then carves its way around the country through October. A couple of festival sets, including Enchanted Forest and Camp Bisco, are woven in around those intimate club dates where this pairing works so well. There are 10 tracks of that gooey goodness waiting for you on April 29.
