Experimental pop unit Body Parts cite an array of influences: Prince, Kate Bush, and, perhaps most notably, Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. Name-dropping aside, it's clear from previously heard tracks "Desperation" and "Unavoidable Things" that the Los Angeles outfit — led by core members Ryder Bach and Alina Cutrono, rounded out by bassist Raymond Proudfoot, drummer Taylor Dexter, and keyboardist Derek Coburn — specialize in supple, funk-informed synth-pop. For further proof, time-travel back to the '80s pick-up scene by streaming "People" below.
Body Parts' debut album, Fire Dream, arrives October 29. Pre-orders are currently available through Father/Daughter Records.
