At a time when the idea of “alternative R&B” has become the genre-defying norm, when hip hop and EDM and house music and indie-rock have all started to sound mysteriously the same, the chilled-out, futuristic soul vibes of Brooklyn electro pop duo denitia and sene make a perfect kind of sense. Formed in 2011, the Brooklyn-based group has released one full-length (2013’s His and Hers), a handful of singles, and two EPs (2012’s Blah Blah Blah and 2014’s side fx)—all of which show off the band’s ability to move seamlessly between pure pop, subdued electronica, and slinky R&B with a sound that brings to mind everything from Massive Attack, The Fugees, or the shadowy late-night atmospherics of The XX. The pairing of powerhouse vocalist Denitia and production whiz and beat-maker Sene is a kind of perfect musical union—a complimentary collision of personalities and musical sensibilities that makes for next level perfect pop.
