Los Angeles synthpop act DWNTWN wins the trophy for cranking out one of my favorite covers of the year so far with this fantastically synthy and buoyant cover of Vance Joy’s stellar hit Riptide. I love Riptide. Lots of people love Riptide. Who knew that DWNTWN’s pop style would work so splendidly with Riptide? DWNTWN’s version carries a new and delectable crystalline elegance.
