Follow-up to the hugely popular Neon Wave (SCORE/097), again blending modern electronica with ’80s nostalgia and this time expanding the palette to include guitars, strings and a menacing electro punk edge.
In the past couple of years alone, the sub-genre of electronic music, also known by names like synthwave, retrowave and futuresynth, has transformed from a whisper on a few select Internet hubs into a self-sustaining musical ecosystem forcing itself up and expanding rapidly. Especially after the release of the 2011 arthouse film triumph ‘Drive’ and Netflix smash ‘Stranger Things’, the genre has exploded in a plume of modern electronic fury. This ’80s-styled album is full of retro warmth and familiarity combined with driving emotional modern production. Retro Futurism at its finest.
