Electro-pop outfit Fitness Club Fiasco have a complicated history. While living in England, ex-pat Canadians Mike Harloff and Jessica Underdown joined forces with native Bristolians and immersed themselves in the UK scene, earning BBC recognition and label interest. Still, it wasn’t long before they were back in Canada, ready to satiate our limitless appetite for catchy synth-driven songs and irrepressible hooks, an example of which we’re premiering below.
“Ghost Dance” is the first single from the Fiasco’s upcoming album Modern Thought. Produced by Mark Underdown, Modern Thought is full of twinkly, life-affirming synth-pop anthems that sound like the Pet Shop Boys decided to collaborate with Stars. Modern Thought is slated for release in the fall. Immerse yourself.
