Not to be confused with the late ’70s post-punk Brit band or the hilariously mellow yacht-rock movement, this Portland duo is what you’d call “ambitious.” Not only are they embarking on a punishing tour schedule but they also published a manifesto on their website touting their ideas on “free” and “the afterlife.” You’re welcome to embrace or disregard such communiques and concentrate instead on their catchy dance-pop, which sounds ra-ra enough to make you think they’d put on a fun show. With MNDR and Bobby Birdman.
