Sukpatch debut their inventive, danceable brand of indie pop on the Beastie Boys' Grand Royal label with the EP Tie Down That Shiny Wave. Analog keyboards, samples, dance beats, and wispy melodies still dominate their sound, and their lo-fi aesthetic seems to connect them with members of the Grand Royal stable such as Money Mark. While it's difficult to do anything with a five-song EP other than whet appetites for an upcoming full-length, Sukpatch do accomplish that quite well.
