AM444 – Eye Wonder

AM444 is one of the most interesting things I’ve heard in a while and possibly the hippest thing to come out of China since Bruce Lee.

Based out of Shanghai, Chinese singer ChaCha and Dutch DJ Jay.Soul have joined forces to create some sleek jazzy electronic pop with a mean dubbed out attitude.

With plenty of soulful swagger, ChaCha cooly croons over DJ Jay.Soul’s funky electronic beats with heavy references to the sonic genius of the 90s with elements of Poe, Suzanne Vega, and the spy vibe of Garbage’s “The World Is Not Enough” plainly heard.

Listen to “Eye Wonder,” the title track of their debut album, below or head over to bandcamp to pick up a copy.
