Electro-pop duo Def Rain gets funky with new single "Lead" [Premiere]

Electro-space-pop duo Def Rain formed in 2011, fusing together the the musical talents of Ashley Cromeens  (singer/songwriter) and DJ Abe Lincoln and quickly becoming a staple of the North Texas music scene.  Their live performance has been captivating audiences, including the lead singer of The Flaming Lips, Wayne Coyne, due to the fog-wrapped, laser-filled vibe that highlights their funky sound.

The duo have individually working in music for some time, trying their hand with a few bands and sounds that were not a perfect fit, finally finding their signature sound when they came together. Today, they are premiering a brand new track, "Leads", off their debut album.

"Leads" takes you back to a 1980s school dance,  snapping and bogeying like Sixteen Candles all over again.  The song features a synthed guitar with a mellow beat and pop vocals.  Def Rain merges together a funky spacey sound, hence the "space" in electro-space-pop that is undeniable upon hearing their music.  Get into this awesome duo, as we expect to see great things from them going forward.
