We are excited to bring you the official premiere of “Whispers,” a new single by Brooklyn-based synth pop duo The Rungs. It’s a catchy, upbeat jam that will have you drumming your fingers along the minute you hear it.
“Whispers” is a delightful fusion of vocal harmonization and electric guitars over a pulsing synth beat. It starts off with lead singer Mandy Gurung singing “whisper, whisper in my ear, tell me all the things you want me to hear,” in a delicate, whisper-like tone, just as the song’s title implies. As the song progresses, the backing synth beat builds and her bandmate/husband, Diwas Gurung joins in, the guitars growing louder, with Mandy proclaiming, “I’m not that innocent, I’ve got a little bit of secrets to tell you.”
These two harmonize nicely here, creating a pleasing track reminiscent of 80s synth jams. It’s quite enjoyable and is sure to bring back those seemingly distant memories of driving to the beach in the summertime.
