Vocalists Erin Jantzen and Yadira Brown debuted their “synth-soul” sound under the name Keeper in 2013, collaborating with Austin’s BoomBaptist on the singles “Bad Doctor” and “Happy To Be Sad” (the latter ended up on the TV show Broad City). Two years later Keeper released a full-length, another subgenre-exploring collaboration with San-Antonio-based producer MoonDoctoR.
The latest collaboration, “You Ain’t Hittin,” (produced by Houston’s Sines) lyrically captures a shift in personal value and power within a relationship over time. A plethora of reverb and delay effects sit comfortably behind lush harmonies, all evoking the overarching tone of Keeper’s upcoming EP, Corners, due for release this September.
