The boys of Tahiti 80 have been in the music game for a long time, at least compared to so many of the indie upstarts who work diligently to avoid "flash in the pan" status. Spearheading the French Invasion of the late '90s and early 2000s, along with notable acts like Phoenix and Air, Tahiti 80 is a modern nod to the west coast pop of the '60s (think: The Beach Boys).
This new track, "Keys to the City" is no different. It reminds me of everything I loved about that GIVERS track, "Up Up Up," I first heard last winter when the days and nights were oh-so gray and unexciting. "Keys to the City" is gonna heat up your winter fo sho.
Tahiti 80 - Keys to the City
The band's ninth EP, Solitary Bizness, is out now, and you can expect the band's fifth full-length, The Past, The Present, & The Possible in February 2011 on the T80's own label, Human Sounds. (There's another Beach Boys reference).
