The New York duo’s new album “Highlights” is due May 19 via True Panther.
There's more to Tanlines than sun-kissed indie synthpop. The band is built on two distinct personas, which compliment each other like a yin and yang -- the same symbol the band just adopted as its new logo.
Eric Emm is the frontman live; he sings lead vocals and writes the lyrics, but it's multi-instrumentalist Jesse Cohen who provides the banter in between songs, in addition to running the irreverent Tanlines Twitter, which reads more like a snarky journalist's. Cohen also hosts his own music and culture podcast -- "No Effects" -- making this easily the most meta edition of The Alt In Our Stars yet.
