Filled with a nostalgic 80s vibe, today’s feature is “Psychic Lovers” by the US synthpop/indietronica band Glass Spells. Vibrant synthesizers team up with an airy-sounding guitar to create a soothing and mellow tune. But, don’t be fooled by thinking it’s a pure 80s synthpop tune as there are hints of punk and modern electronic — which is the unique trademark of the band’s sound — woven throughout. If you listen carefully there is a hint of electronic punk in the melody and even in the higher pitch vocals that have sort of a punch in their sound.
A lead-off single for the band’s newest EP Mirrors, “Psychic Lovers” brilliantly harkens back to back to the 80s with its colorful synthpop landscapes. But deep inside those landscapes, you can listen to hints of modern electronic, pop-punk, and indie embedded in the melody and vocals. A must-listen for a nostalgic feel and a modern taste!
