Cologne

Soundcloud / Facebook

Cologne is the brainchild of Staten Island natives Danny Lane and Billy Manoudakis, making quirky electronic pop that commands attention on their Hit City U.S.A. debut. 

Their creative process was born from abnormal inconvenience — Billy works as a boat’s captain while Danny stays landlocked, producing tracks and hustling as a photographer.

Throughout this, the two share a thing for synths and classic pop, creating songs that are warm, relaxed, and catchy. Though their influences range from 80s dance music to Drake, they see Cologne as something new and have a very pure idea of success: "If people are like 'that was catchy and it felt pretty good' we are happy," says Lane.
