In the early 2000s, Canadian group Hot Hot Heat, led by frontman Steve Bays, were tearing up dance floors with their unique blend of indie rock, dance-punk, and post-punk revival. While they never achieved overwhelming commercial success, the band maintained a devoted fan base right up until they called it quits in 2016.
This week, however, Bays is back with a new project: Left Field Messiah. A supergroup of sorts, here Bays has teamed up with Jeremy Ruzumna (Fitz & The Tantrums) and Erik Janson (Wildling) to form an accomplished trio.
Their debut single “AM Moonlight” – today’s track of the day – showcases the band’s amalgamation of genres. With its fusion of funk, indie rock, and synth-pop, the track will have you dancing in your living room.
The group’s debut album is scheduled for release in early 2021 and promises to be a rollicking good listen.
