Hooyoosay has just released their latest effort, Googly Goo. This EP contains two tracks – Googly Goo and Tare Too Te Rut Te (there are also instrumental versions of the two tracks presented. Googly Goo is a fun bit of electronc pop that links together acts like Men Without Hats and Yaz. There is a current and contemporary style to the track that will appease fans of chiptune and EDM styles. The track benefits from complex array of different arrangements that combine to create something that is infectious and will be in listeners’ heads long after the track ceases. The B-side to Googly Goo is Tare Too Te Rut Te stands on its own; it dovetails nicely with the A-side while providing a considerably different style for Hooyoosay. The track meshes together Wendy Carlos (Switched On Bach) with late-nineties j-pop; what results is something that could easily be on the next Katamari Damacy  or Harvest Moon title.61hDidzbUOL._SS280
