Original synth pop with an 80s feel.
A freshly-remixed retrospective of the best songs by X-Sonic from 2007-2017 with three brand-new covers of classic 80s hits including Animotion's 1985 hit "Obsession", European megahit "Big In Japan" by Alphaville, and a collaborative cover with fellow indie-synth artist Synthetik FM on the early-80s hit by Canadian band Rational Youth "Saturdays In Silesia"
The follow-up to the 2010 release "The Speed of Light", this album features all-new music that will be especially appealing to those who love 80s-style synth pop with a danceable beat and intelligent lyrics.
The work on this project has spanned over three years, from the autumn of 2010 shortly after I finished "The Speed of Light" until early 2014. It has been a labor of love from start to finish. The musical inspiration for these songs run the gamut of various synth-based acts from the last two decades of the 20th century, from early 80s acts like OMD, The Human League, and Depeche Mode, to later 80s acts such as Erasure and New Order, and on into the 90s with everything from Italo-Disco to various house-influenced bands.
Modern synthpop with a classic 80s influence.
This CD single release is from the forthcoming album "Machine Language." Nearly 3 1/2 years in the making, these tracks represent the continuing development and refinement of the classic 80s-influenced synth pop that is the sound of X-Sonic.
An album that perfectly captures the feel of 1980s synthpop while at the same time sounding completely new. With the mix of classic analog synth sounds and traditional musical elements, the songs on this release are electronic pop at its very best.
For those who love the sound and feel of classic synthpop, for those who are tired of hyper-produced plastic pop with vocals that have been Auto-tuned to death, and for those who just like great music with a beat you can dance to, "The Speed Of Light" is the album you've been waiting for. "The Speed Of Light" contains a distillation of the last 2 years worth of studio work since the completion of X-Sonic's debut album "Synthetic Heart" including a unique hi-NRG dance reinterpretation of the 1979 soft rock classic "Stumblin' In" by Suzi Quatro and Chris Norman.
