Your Underdog - "No Swim Zone" Has a Casio Soul and a New Wave Heart

Synth laden romantic new wave has made a steady comeback ever since John Hughes' Pretty In Pink popularized it in the mid-80's or maybe it never really went away. All I know is that bands like Future Islands or Roses have stoked the synth pop fires as of late (for me anyway).

New York City's Your Underdog has just released "No Swim Zone" which percolates with a Casio soul complete with hand claps and dreamy synth lines that make you remember your first broken heart. The vocal performance reminds me a bit of Thomas Mars of Phoenix. This is my first introduction to Your Underdog and I want to hear more.-
