ריו

Was reading Noisey‘s recent feature about Tel Aviv‘s music scene – which isn’t all that great, if you ask me; I lived in the area for nearly two years -and came across this band ריו (Reo). I checked out the video above and was like “Damn. That is a great song.” I didn’t even notice at first that the unabashedly retro disco outfit is a new project of Zoe Polanski, whose music as Bela Tar has graced the webpages of Gold Soundz before.

I think it’s also worth noting that this was the only band out of all the ones Noisey chose to write about that sings in Hebrew. The takeaway: the best Israeli music is stuff that’s proud to be Israeli, not trying to sell itself off to Europe and North America in English.
