Review:: Pedals | SPEAK

An electronic journey, taking you back to the 80s and 90s at the same time. SPEAK provides you with the ultimate fusion of electronic, dance, and indie. Grab that G&T and some comfy shoes because you’ll be shakin’ and groovin’ all night long.

“Gates,” from their new album Pedals, is hands down my favorite; it leaves you with chills from being such an uplifting and powerful track. The entire album is fantastic! They have romantic lyrics, upbeat tempos, and diverse sounds in every track. Not only is their album great they also recently collaborated with RAC in their track “I Should’ve Guessed,“ another song worth checking out! Their strength is in the harmonies that pull the listener from beginning to end. Pedals is a light up-beat album that has a “robust” flavor that can be played around all musical tastes. 

SPEAK has so much promise, I have a feeling we will be hearing a lot more of them as they continue to gain rapid popularity! Go download their album on itunes or check them out at Jump on board before they hit the radio!
