“It really was super natural”, laughs Duncan Troast, explaining how he and Nick Corson came to form The Convenience, and though he means it was as organic as breathing, the music these two conjure is from an alternate reality. Pulling from a pastiche of 80’s sounds and their own rolodex of future pop flourishes, their new album Accelerator sounds like a late-night disco party on a distant outpost, a sea of dancing bodies illuminated by an alien moon. The two met at New Orleans’ Loyola University, where they eventually joined the rising pop group Video Age, and before long, were spending the downtime between tours exploring what their own music could sound like. The result of those efforts is the band's debut, a singular album packed with visceral, immediate pleasure; body music for a plastic pop future. At its core, Accelerator is a celebration of friendship and the transportive power of music. It’s an ode to the joy of dancing, of loving just to have loved, and becoming who you are.
