    Like the imaginary lines that connect different areas of the globe, The Meridians are a French duo that stretches the longitudinal boundaries of French touch 2.0 to the hip sounds of western chillwave! Chillwave? We likey! So will you when you listen to their new single "Animals" here.



    Otherwise known as Pierre Sendrané and Florent De Maria, this Euro-pop outfit is one you’d find haunting dancefloors with orbiting disco in a dirty underground club in Vegas. With ties to Nicolas Fromageau of M83 (Pierre played drums with him in Holy Ghost), Meridians stays loyal to their European roots while summoning the trancey dreamwave beats of Washed Out for those who can’t deny the appeal of '80s synth pop.

    I felt like I was floating on a cloud when I cranked this. It sounds like it could have been used in the closing credits of Sixteen Candles or any other Molly Ringwald flick.

    Check out their new singles "Cobra"/"Desert of Love" here.
