San Francisco synth-pop duo Seatraffic just released a dreamy new single called “Superficial Heart”, and fellow City resident YR SKULL (aka Push The Feeling resident DJ Andrew Marcogliese) is offering up a remix of the track, which debuted on The Fader last week. Drew’s remix puts a tropical spin on the track, adding snare and steel drums to the front of the mix. Both the original and remix are available below for streaming and free download via Seatraffic’s Bandcamp.

Mark Zannad (vocals/synth) and Brandon Harrison (drums/vocals) began collaborating as Seatraffic in 2010. This year, the duo will be releasing four new singles for free, starting with “Superficial Heart”. The tracks were conceived while Zannad was studying architecture in Europe last summer. He fleshed out the songs with Harrison in October before heading to San Francisco’s Different Fur Studios to record the tracks with Nic Pope.

Andrew Marcogliese (YR SKULL) is also one half of Silver Hands, who will co-headline a show with Seatraffic at DNA Lounge in San Francisco on Thursday, April 18, with support from Shortcircles. This week, Seatraffic makes its SXSW debut at 12pm on Saturday, March 16 for the Om Records x Lavish Habits x Blu Electric Lounge showcase at 418 E. 6th Street in Austin, Texas.
