I will make it a goal!

I saw ariich has a post-roulette thing, is that him exploring artists more even though he is done? I want to do something like that with this thread, go back to artists I liked the most and talk about more discoveries.
Yep, precisely. It's me checking out artists in more depth and reporting back my thoughts.

Hey James, are 2024 songs allowed?

I don't want to go that route, I want to discover the year in its own time.

Fine..be that way... no new Nemophila for you.

I didn't say that, did I? But fuck it, send me stuff, 8 minute limit is off but don't send me over 30 minutes pretty fucking please. I don't have that much time in the day :lol

I want this roulette to end next Friday btw, I have that day off and it'll be best for me to do write-ups, and then I can move on to post-roulette listening.

Just sent, and it's only 18 minutes. Just listen to it once or something (although once you've heard it you'll want to spin it again, and again, and again!).

:lol I'm gonna give it a few spins at least, having my planning period to myself has helped get extra listening in!

Certainly a few 80s elements for sure.  Some more modern ones too, which gives them a bit more timeless and singular feel to me.  I've liked how they've expanded their sound of late to include more of this approach. 

That's cool, what are the more modern elements?

There's been a fair amount of electronic/pop of various stripes in recent years that intentionally adopts a lot of aesthetic traits that are reminiscent of music from the 80s, and this song is certainly in that mold.  But the nice thing is that they can choose the elements from that era that don't sound as dated, and integrate them with more modern ones.  There are various synth sounds and production and mixing details throughout the song that didn't really exist back then, so it's kind of a best of both worlds scenario.  I'd also say the songwriting feel, the phrasing and tone of the guitar solo, and the vocal style are also a bit more modern than anything from that time.

Oh man, yes this makes perfect sense now. I can hear back to the song and see what you mean, thank you for that breakdown.


I have 10/15 submissions, please try by today to the remaining 5!
