Los Angeles duo Mannequin Online return with their infectious new single, “Tempo,” the first since their debut EP, I Feel It, was released in 2020. The brainchild of married couple Zach DeGaetano and Bridget Boltz, the new single hinges on a bass-boosted beat topped off with handclaps and a fidget spinner doubling as a hi-hat. When asked about the track, they explain, “It is about that feeling when you’re smack dab in the middle of the rat race, and you have two choices: match the speed or bow out!”


Mannequin Online formally came to life in 2019 after Zach had made a name for himself as one-third of the acclaimed trio WILD and as a touring musician and songwriter for acts like Tate McCrae,  while Bridget shined as a sought-after session bassist and vocalist for artists like XYZ. They gained traction with their 2020 Feel It EP, gaining over 2 million Spotify streams and garnering critical praise from outlets like Buzzbands, Surviving the Golden Age, Atwood Magazine, and more. The followed the EP with remixes by popular artists like San Cisco, Frills, and GOLDHOUSE. Stay tuned for more to come.
