The song takes you back to the analog synthpop of the early/mid ’80s. Then you look at the associated picture of the band mates, and it fits perfectly, with an aqua-colored skinny tie and headband complementing their black shirts and serious looks on their faces. Great stuff. Parts of this Toronto band’s song really reminds me of Berlin’s ʺMasqueradeʺ. The synths twinkle, buzz, fade, and swell throughout the song with really nicely interwoven vocals during the final minute.
This is volume 3 in my modern synth series which features brand new synth tracks from up and coming artists along with some new releases from more established artists. All of these tracks are synth heavy and many are inspired from the new wave era in the 80s.
“Onto Something”, the dreamy opening synthpop track on Soviet’s new third album, would’ve been part of a perfect driving soundtrack in a convertible sports car on a summer night in the mid-1980s while watching the city lights reflect off the glass and steel of modern L.A.
This mix features brand new music from legendary 80s new wave artists. All of these songs have been released after 2010. Many of these songs are as good, if not better, then the artists original work from the 80’s. It’s great to see that these bands that we grew up with are still making relevant music today.
This is Volume 2 of a mix featuring bands whose sound is inspired by the Drive Soundtrack. This is a popular theme on the Halcyon Waves show. This mix features songs from this genre over the last year or so, blended together for your enjoyment.
This is the second volume in the Modern Synth series that features some of DJ Mikey’s favorite new synth tracks from his Halcyon Waves show over the past 3 months.
For this mix, DJ Mikey has put together some of this favorite darker synth songs for you. Although not intended, quite a few of these songs end up having a heavy Depeche Mode sound to them.
