April Was A Passenger – "Wall"

Happy Monday! Or at least it’s about to be after you take a listen to Wall by April Was a Passenger.

I was hooked during the first twenty seconds of listening to this song. The slow build in the first 30 seconds had me so intrigued for what was about to happen with the rest of the song. I felt like I was watching a super intense thriller, but in song form. I don’t even like thrillers but if they were ever this great, thriller movie-makers might have a new fan coming their way.

April Was a Passenger hails from Paris consisting of Minouche Briot, Jérôme Baudouin, and Anthony Caruana. This trio has been making music since September, 2011, and clearly been kicking butt and taking names.

This electropop song has different twists throughout that will remind you of some of your greater dancing memories that were made while listening to the likes of M83, Youngblood Hawke, Justice, and Passion Pit – just to name a few. If you like what you hear, the band just released their EP on Friday. You can check it out on Soundcloud.
