LectroLips - Tough Enough

LectroLips is an electro-pop duo from the UK.  The group, consisting of Leo Tarring and Antony Edwards, makes music that sounds like it's straight out of the '80s.  Their single "Tough Enough" focuses on heavy percussion, synths, and a vocoder.  While the song has the vibe of 1989, it still possesses a modern twist that is popular in much of today's pop music.  The bass line sometimes borders on sounding too dated, but that may be a good thing.

"Tough Enough" can be found on LectroLips' latest EP, Exempt From Classification.  The song is unapologetically catchy.  There isn't much music nowadays, especially from the US, that has this distinct funk dance sound to it.  This group definitely has a niche genre that may be either a hit or miss for some listeners.

LectroLips' music can be downloaded for free, here.  Their newest EP doesn't strictly stick to the heavier style of "Tough Enough".  There's a variety of sounds including "Glimmer", a nearly eight minute electro epic.  While some of the production on the EP has room for improvement, it's an album that is consistent in sound and style.
