"Nylon Mag"

It's not often that enigmatic groups capture the attention of the music industry. It's particularly less frequent when said groups don't have the support of a major record label behind them. Sure, it's not impossible—after all, the Gorillaz and Daft Punk have done pretty well for themselves, to put it lightly.

London experimental electro-pop duo Cash + David are set to join their ranks pretty soon, seeing as their debut single, "Funn," dominated the indie streaming charts. Their follow-up, "Pulse," achieved even greater success, its Middle Eastern-influenced, bass-looped track setting them apart from the other synth-dwellers trying to make their stamp on the market. Now, "Pulse" gets an update via a smooth, condensed, throbbing remix by psychedelic pop husband-and-wife duo Peaking Lights. -


"Noisey - Music by Vice"

As a duo Cash+David are still newbies in the world and this is only their third ever. Thus far each song shows off a distinct facet of their nascent sound. For instance, "Funn" is built on manipulated female vocals (think Polica meets Imogen Heap) and a fuzzily distorted guitar line. Second release "Pulse" is more dancefloor appropriate with Liz Lawrence's tones (she goes by the name David for this project) gliding unadorned over a backdrop of beat clatters and claps and elastic basslines (thanks to Tim Ross, also known as Cash). "Pulse" also hit number one on the Hype Machine (remember Hype Machine?). Which brings us to "Bones," premiering above. Interestingly, once you know about Lawrence's folk background—they met when Ross produced her pared back debut album when she was just 19—it's easy to imagine her melodies in an entirely acoustic setting. But here acoustic guitars are paired with synths and canned beats and the effect is modern and sleek.

Visually each video hangs on the beauty the human body in movement and "Bones" is no different: bodies move in slo-mo, coming together and falling apart, in dance or battle or possibly in a move to comfort. Whichever way you look at it, it's beautiful. -


"The Guardian"

All three Cash + David singles – Funn, Pulse and Bones – are worth your time, if you like female-fronted electronic pop (who doesn’t?). It’s immensely, immediately enjoyable stuff, for fans, perhaps, of Goldfrapp, with a tinge of Grimes. It’s as instant as their lineup is perplexing: David is 24-year-old former folkie Liz Lawrence, also a touring member of Bombay Bicycle Club, and Cash is Tim Ross, a 25-year-old songwriter who has, oddly, been signed up to pen some tunes for the next Lego movie. They met in 2009 when he produced her early solo work for EMI and began operating as C + D four years later. To retain “utter creative control”, they established a label, +, on which they released Funn, followed by Pulse and Bones, the first of which came accompanied by a video featuring dancers masquerading as Johnny Cash and David Bowie, even though the former has nothing to do with Ross (Cash) nor does David (Lawrence) refer to Bowie . Confused? You will be. -
