With members in both Arizona and California, Therapist are already making a name for themselves in both states for their punky, funky, nu-disco sound. With nods to Gossip and the Moving Units, Therapist’s new single “Desire” delivers a solid bass punch, spiked and everything.

Recorded at Audioconfusion and co-engineered/co-produced by Jalipaz, this track is sure to go down in the history books as a real wake-up call. Now if only it could get on the Billboard Hot 100 for real…
