Why did I think Is Tropical were French? Maybe because they are signed to über-hip Parisian label Kitsuné, and their amazing video for “The Greeks” features French kids performing acts of cartoon ultraviolence on each other. Anyway, they’re actually from London – home of whatever we’re calling the second wave of new rave, the indie-electro bands that have followed Klaxons into the mainstream. But to add to the geographical confusion, Is Tropical have produced one of our favourite songs about the city we love, featured below. If you’d like to see the band’s storming live set, we’re giving away two pairs of tickets – scroll down for deets!
