Funk on full display—stream The Sponges’ latest single, ‘Jerry Brain’
This isn’t your grandmother’s groove.
Rippling with funk conferred by The Sponges‘ patented cuts, personality-ridden synth work, and samples to boot, “Jerry Brain” brings Ryan Slepin and Nik Eaton back to Box of Cats—and they turn the label into Funktopia accordingly. ’70s cues, four-on-the-floor rhythms, bass, and sample chops have emerged as hallmarks of The Sponges’ psychedelic wizardry since the two-man outfit leapt onto the scene several years prior, and these elements remain choice components of their toolkit today, as “Jerry Brain” so colorfully conveys. Rocketing onto major streaming platforms on March 12, “Jerry Brain” will vibrantly capture your attention—and that’s a Dancing Astronaut guarantee.
