The message is simple + the delivery is electrifying.  Tesla Boy teams up with London crooner Tyson to ask the question “Do you want to dance?”  And the answer is…most definitely.  It’s that hot + heavy kind of dancing where you get just close enough to someone, you’re barely touching them.  You can feel your breath on each other as you mirror one another on the dance floor.  “Broken Doll” is a dark + sexy electrosensual jam that will surely get your engine running on the dance floor and beyond.

Tesla Boy’s fantastic new album ‘The Universe Made of Darkness’ is out now via iTunes. [HERE]

I’ve always appreciated Tesla Boy for taking their dark disco & new wave influences from decades past and modernizing them into a sound they’ve been able to call their own.  They’ve taken an 80s-style approach to their sound and updated it with an edge that new wave & synth pop from that era was sorely missing.  Their latest track “M.C.H.T.E.” harks back to early INXS (particularly “Original Sin”) with the addition of that definitive Tesla Boy bounce.  That added punch alongside some big percussion & always-stylish vocals on “M.C.H.T.E.” should be plenty to get Tesla Boy’s faithful fans fired up & ready for their forthcoming new album.  Time to get excited!

Tesla Boy’s new album “The Universe Made Of Darkness” is out worldwide on May 21st.

“The waves ≠ raves consists of hand-picked gems that inspire us, tickling and tempting our creative juices. Some are old, some are new, but it is what we are listening to now. They are groovey, flowing, and sun-kissed just like that perfect wave. They are uplifting and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. They sound the best with a babe in one hand, a cold brewski in the other, and the sand beneath your feet. Stay Dreamy.”

Tesla Boy are back with their new single, “In Your Eyes”, which made its debut on the newly released Kitsuné Maison Compilation 12.  Tesla Boy uploaded a handful of remixes of “In Your Eyes” onto their SoundCloud, calling them “Online Only Bonus Content”.  Not exactly sure what that means since, according to their Facebook page, there is no plan for a separate release of “In Your Eyes”.  So basically they’re saying here’s some remixes we’re not releasing nor are we making any of them available for download.  BLUE BALLS.  Whatever the case may be, I’m just happy to hear new material by Tesla Boy.  Absent from the bonus remixes on Tesla Boy’s SoundCloud is the Volta Cab remix, which is my pick of the bunch.  It’s the perfect deep disco track to seduce someone to.  Next time you are putting together a Spotify playlist aimed at getting you some action under the sheets, I suggest you start it off with this…


Russian new wave-ists Tesla Boy are all set to release “Rebecca”, the third single off their outstanding debut album “Modern Thrills”.  It’s a family affair with remixes by Mullet Records label mates Estate, Satin Jackets + Solila.  Released exclusively on Juno Records today!

Listening to the new albums by French band Minitel Rose and Russian band Tesla Boy will make you piss glitter and crap disco balls. Both albums are smooth, sleazy and full of bounce from beginning to end. These two bands aren’t trying to sound like 80s New Wave bands, they ARE New Wave bands thru and thru. They’ve taken New Wave and given it the proper Electro update that the genre deserves.

Love songs, power pop, dancefloor fillers…go snatch up Atlantique by Minitel Rose & Modern Thrills by Tesla Boy NOW.
