Listen: Footwerk’s new single & EP “Retrograde”


Musical power couple Kyle and Melissa are Footwerk, a UK meets US indie pop act that just debuted their new party anthem and brand new EP, “Retrograde”.

“Retrograde” is what you get from a band that’s having fun with their music, and their style, and features killer beats, addictive crooning, and Melissa’s smooth soul vocals on the bridge. The single is destined for house parties, and the rest of the EP is a solid series of hit-worthy tracks for fans that love a good mash-up of musical styles. The EP is fresh and lively, never content to stick to a genre, especially moving from the genre-bending and soulful “Finer Things”, the bombastic “Next Ex”, and the soulful “Bang Bang”, each of which blends pop, soul, and R&B.

Footwerk’s attitude is one they call “no strings attached” with “one night stand” performances for their fans. The Retrograde EP was co-produced by Grammy-nominated artist Chris Wright, and features vocals by two-time Grammy nominee Trevor Young of SOJA on the track “Finer Things”.
