[SYNTH POP] Purse Candy knows how to lay the electro-funk vibes on thick. Maybe it’s the continuous cascade of teetering synths, the simple, anthemic choruses and the four-on-the-floor beats, but the group—which started off as a solo project for frontman Matthew Ellis in 2007—invokes Michael Jackson-style dance moves under neon-speckled disco balls. “Messiah,” the first track off Visions of a Healed Kingdom, due out later this year, struts confidently through bright flashes of fuzzed-out synth, a groovy guitar riff and insistent cowbell. Ellis’ shifting, falsetto vocals are just as likely to whisper as they are to wail in sudden, surprising glee, a technique that pairs nicely with the glossy sheen of Purse Candy’s infectious hooks.
