Fascinations Grand Chorus - deep injection 100% pure 60's pop sound - "Until I Found You"

Until I Found You by Jersey City, New Jersey's Fascinations Grand Chorus is so exquisitely drenched in a 60's pure pop sound free from modern post punk filters. Unabashedly honed and recorded faithfully with analog equipment to capture those beautiful imperfections and utilizing the techniques of Joe Meek and Phil Spector (minus maybe a large plate reverb set up). Stephanie and Andrew who were known songwriter rivals in the local NJ scene came together by their love of of The Misfits, 1910 Fruitgum Company and vintage arcade games. When I first heard their sound, their aesthetic I felt a kind of hybrid feeling of Summer Twins and Dante Elephante. Capturing a classic sound is not as easy as it might appear but the two succeed even live. I plan on swimming in their sounds forever.
