Spring has sprung and brought along the fantastic Los Angeles based electro-pop duo, Backnbloom and their album, Music for the Modern Monkey.

Backnbloom’s electro-pop is innovative, catchy, spry, loads of fun and total headphone ear candy. It’s amazing to note that so many different sounds can emerge from two mere mortals.

** Listen to “Start Again” on Earbits! **

Be sure to LIKE Backnbloom on Facebook, or FOLLOW them on Twitter! In the meantime, check out their newest video, “Venice”.
