Surreal Austin dance act CAPYAC first piqued our interest with their incredible Ursula Barker-directed music video, “Speedracer,” hinting at the smart, funk-infused sound that’d make up their debut full-length album, Headlunge. “I promise we could take it slow,” the duo says, reveling in conscious, campy lyricism that perfectly complements their bouncy, disco-pop production.
The breakout 13-track effort represents more than a year of collaboration between CAPYAC duo P. Sugz and Potion, and it’s just as dynamic as their buzzed-about live act. Though polished throughout, the album offers a range of energy, from the more high-octane cut, “All Your Life,” to the slower, sexier, “Disco Muse.” There’s a strong sense of imbued nostalgia, much like Daft Punk, Chromeo or, more recently, The Knocks.
Along with a fresh LP, CAPYAC rolls out today their own graphic fashion line—the clothing equivalent of their bright, bold music.
“Fashion has always been essential to us as musicians,” CAPYAC said. “With an eye in the music world and a foot in the fashion world, it only made sense that we would create a line of our own. We teamed up with HELMUT studio to help create the set and photograph the pieces. Along with the fashion line, we’re releasing our debut album today.”
