Up-and-coming Barcelona, Spain-based electro pop artist Tiffany Garnett Sotomayor writes, records and performs under the moniker, The Girl With the Dark Eyes. And in a recent Interview Magazine profile, Sotomayor describes her sound as “a dinner party where Daft Punk sips Blood Orange champagne with Prince and Chromeo." 

Her latest single "Balloon” is a seductive and slickly produced bit of electro pop that sounds as though it owes a great sonic debt to the 80s – but interestingly although the song is celebratory to a degree, there’s a bit of sadness underneath the surface. And throughout the song, that tension is palpable while being incredibly catchy; in fact, I think that tension propels the song forward and makes it pretty memorable.
