Brooklyn-based indie pop band RANN has released a new single entitled “Copycat.”
RANN is a Brooklyn-based quartet that have garnered a fair amount of praise for their collage-genre combining indie rock, dream pop, psych and punk. Although, the four members initially met while studying at Berklee College of Music in Boston, it wasn’t until they all moved to Brooklyn in 2014 that they decided to write music together and create the melting pot of influences that defines RANN.
“Copycat” is an awesome mix of synth pop and indie rock with an apparent ‘80s flair reminiscent of INXS and Peter Gabriel.
The band is currently gearing up for the release of their new EP Renegade Holiday, which will feature “Copycat”. The EP follows-up the band’s debut album, Yellowgunn.
‘Copycat’ is an intriguing juxtaposition musically with its blend of uncliched psychedelia and unpretentious garage-band angst that evokes the familiar while carving out its own place in Bushwick.” -Earmilk
“…think Phoenix with a touch more grit, or The Strokes draped in synth.” -Thrd Coast
“[Copycat] develops the quartet’s sophisticated sound in a darker direction, supported by ambiguous lyrics with vague political overtones.” -The Deli NYC
