The Toronto-based indie synth pop artist, Vivek Shraya, is no stranger to the world of music. He produced 3 singer/songwriter albums throughout the better part of this decade, however, his latest release, Keys & Machines, is a much "brattier, boomier, bassier" export than previous works.

Keys & Machines, released on November 17, reunites Shraya with producer Meghan Toohey (Weepies, Lenka, Rachael Cantu) for nine new songs inspired by late-night Paris clubs and broken spaces in relationships. The result is all things radly danceable and highly emotional.

Shraya's offering up lead single, I Am a Bass Drum for free. It's a slice of disco indiepop pie that will undoubtedly secure him a spot on your iTunes most played list. Grab his cover of Seven Nation Army as well. Crunchy and yummy!
