New Sounds: The Ropes

Someone — maybe a friend of the band? — sent me an email tipping me off to NYC duo The Ropes, calling their sound “kind of like a retro Peter Bjorn and John vibe.” I’m not sure I’d agree with that, but “Kitty Get Down” does have a laid-back pop sound that might make you think they’re Scandinavian. Cute video too.
