synthpop track


BESIDES his other bow-strings playing in Toronto power-poppers Bunny and the heart-hookin’ bubblegum fun of The Bicycles, Toronto’s Drew Smith also fashions a lovely ambient synthpop under his birth name: dreamy, fun, blissful, and very much of an effect with Montreal’s Afternoon Bike Ride. It’s sorta candyfloss brittle and ice-melt pure and futuristic and just …

MANCUNIAN new wave ravers Sugarstone have tucked away the dayglo, hands-in-the-air synth thang just for now as they embrace the aesthetics of the darkest month; and with the winter solstice nearly here, they’ve taken a swerve into goth-pop drama with a final single for ’21, “Pink Duct Tape”. The song keeps that rave squelch and …

FREDRICTON, New Brunswick musician Bob Deveau, who you’ll find jaunting out and about in synthy surroundings as Senior Citizen away from the drum stool he usually occupies with bands like The Olympic Symphonium, Grand Theft Bus and Force Fields, is primed to release an album with sometime bandmate Tim Walker at the beginning of next month for …

THE KILLERS’ founding member and guitarist Dave Keuning has released another taster of his June solo album, A Mild Case Of Everything, with the video for the anthemically synthy “Time & Fury”. You can’t deny Dave has a way with a tune, his writing at the heart of The Killers’ incredible success down the years. …

Y’KNOW one thing that’s missing from our lives – I know, I know, a zillion things, right, but: technicolour.
