The Undercover Dream Lovers’ Bring Luscious Grooves with ‘The Master’ [Stream]

While the name The Undercover Dream Lovers may bring to mind the image of two men in a soul funk duo wearing matching gold lamé suits à la Chromeo, the lovers in question are actually just one guy, Brooklyn based artist and producer Matt Koenig. The sounds that this indie-pop project produces are funky and smooth, for sure, but this project is also a lot weirder than the name suggests. One of his latest tracks, “The Master”, has the lilting, lush grooves of early Beach House, but the funky, eerie soul of bands like Glass Animals and Bear in Heaven. It’s hard to say if the song makes me sad or just makes me want to dance, which is, oddly enough, a perfect combination.
