Pretty Good Dance Moves

Pretty Good Dance Moves = ingenious band name!

Formed in Chicago, IL and now based out of Brooklyn, electro-pop duo Pretty Good Dance Moves will release their long-awaited new EP, PGDM on March 9. The duo, Jimmy Giannapoulos and Aaron Allieta,  created an EP full of slinky synthesizers and seductive dance beats. The duo scoured the globe for vocalists and found voices to complement their laid-back, synth-pop sound, recruiting several important guest stars, including Chicago vocalist Angelina Lucero and singer-songwriter Heather Christian. You can hear the results on the band’s single “Leave Me Alone,” which features Swedish pop legend Bjorn Yttling of Peter Bjorn & John on vocals and also as co-writer. Stereogum premiered the track, calling it “a triumphant little electro-pop track that tickles hearts and synths.” Preview it here.

PGDM’s first EP was released in 2006. The video  for their single “Demons Dancing,” stars Flight of the Conchord’s Kristen Schaal!
