Today I bring you ‘Child Grows Old’ a fun and wistful electro-pop ditty by Sydney-based Electronic-Shoegaze duo, Micra. The duo is comprised of Producer/Guitarist Robbie Cain from Australia and Bulgarian Singer Ivana Kay.
Singer Ivana Kay’s atmospheric, breathy yet luscious vocals bounce along the synth and guitar drove track. Providing a unique contrast along with the beachy vibes, 90s shoegaze rhythm, and melodies that also feature prominently throughout the track.
Member Robbie Cain said he drew inspiration from such artists as Zero 7, Deerhunter, and Beach House looking to add his own contemporary take on it. It’s something which he and his bandmate Ivana have successfully done on this single. The song also succeeds well in its lyric ability, easily stoking the listeners sense of nostalgia without coming across dated. This was something supremely important to the band considering what the song is about according to Robbie Cain. A song about moving forward and not staying stagnant, and the struggles that could bring.
“The song explores a time in life which felt like nothing had changed for too long. Waiting around for something to happen without knowing where to begin. It’s an internal conversation about forcing yourself to jump into the next phase of life and facing the obstacles that come out of that.”
– Robbie Cain

Tropic, the soulful Electro-pop duo I very recently introduced you to just dropped a brand new song and it’s a lit one. The band who I just Interviewed here, have released a sexy cover of the “Earth Wind and Fire” classic “September”. Singer Jo-B Sebastian’s glossy vocals glide wondrously along the slick electronic production from Phuse aka Jarel Hill. Giving way to a super groovy electronic reimagination of the 70s Uber classic jam. The subtle addition of vocal chops on the choruses, adds a fresh new vibe to the track as well. The song is updated just enough to have it fit in with the plethora of today’s electronic-based R&B tracks, while still keeping the integrity of that era, song and Earth Wind and Fire.
“Earth, Wind & Fire are one of the many inspirations we both share, and while no one can do it like they can, we felt the need to show our respect and admiration for one of our favorite artists with this heartfelt cover of one of their biggest hits. We definitely put our own Tropic twist on the track, but we hope it still has the familiarity of a song that everyone and their mother knows and loves.” – Tropic
