Brooklyn synthpop duo Great Good Fine OK met one evening in 2013 and by the next morning had written their first song together, You’re the One for Me, a gauzy, heart-thumping anthem that hit #1 on Hype Machine twice in one month and instantly established the group’s sound with Jon Sandler’s dancefloor falsetto soaring over Luke Moellman’s lush post-Space Age production, the perfect soundtrack for retrofuturism.
An EP, Body Diamond, soon followed, and in 2014 GGFO’s second EP, 2M2H, reached #10 on the iTunes dance chart and featured the St. Lucia collaboration Something to Believe In. They co-wrote and performed on The Chainsmoker’s single Let You Go and recorded a cover of Phil Collins’s Easy Lover with fellow Brooklynite Panama Wedding, as well as remixing songs by St Lucia, Foxes, Twenty One Pilots, Luxley, Little Daylight, and many others.
GGFO has amassed a large contingent of loyal fans who have come to expect over-the-top live performances involving silk kimonos, triggered lights, and histrionic keytar solos, with Jon and Luke backed by drummer Danny Wolf and guitarist Carey Clayton. Their latest release Great Good Five Ok is out now.
