The LA-based Australian duo Bag Raiders are in the midst of recording a long-awaited, upcoming album; the band's first full-length release since their 2010 self-titled debut. In the meantime they've been working on an EP entitled Nairobi/Savannah to hold their fans over. On the EP's lead single, "Nairobi," the pair take their ornate electro-pop sound and deconstruct it for the dance floor. With marimba melodies that soar atop nimble conga rhythms, cowbells, and a funky, relentless guitar riff, the track brings much-needed personality to the tech-house palette. While fans should expect a more embellished strain of radio-ready electronic pop from their forthcoming release, "Nairobi" and it's club-ready follow-up "Savannah" are equally powerful servings of worldly modern disco. Nairobi/Savannah is due out on July 8 via Modular Recordings and features remixes by London booty bass maestro Zombie Disco Squad and Melbourne favorite Roland Tings.
