Electro pop duo, The Boom Circuits, first arrived on the scene last year with swoony single "Everything and Nothing," off the soundtrack for international box office smash, Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2. Roll your eyes about the movie all you want, but you do not want to miss out on the genius of it’s soundtrack. It is in fact how I came to find this dreamy pair, consisting of Vega Schenk and Andy Ellis.
Somewhere in the scope of fellow synthpop artists Passion Pit and Sun Airway, they quickly caught my attention. I was pleased to find out they had previously released two EPs, though none have captured my heart quite the way their newest single "Alive" has. With introspective lyrics that cut right to your core, it’s atmospheric, chilled-out vibe is a perfect daydreamy break from your hectic day.
