If you are a fan of synthpop, 2018 is shaping up to be a banner year. We’ve already seen some marquee releases, but nothing to prepare me for this. Iconic British synthpop band Spray have completely floored me with their new single, Anthologised by Cherry Red. The duo of Jenny McLaren and Ricardo Autobahn (formerly of the chart topping Cuban Boys) are set to release this new track on May 11th, but we’ve got the world premiere and your opportunity to hear it here first! We’ve got the official music video as well!
We’ve also got a Soundcloud stream if you’re on the go and can’t watch the video just yet (but come back and check it out, it’s just as much fun as the song!)
I don’t know when it happened, but music over the years has gotten so very serious. I’d forgotten how much fun it is to hear a song and immediately feel the need to get up and dance. Anthologised by Cherry Red taps into the very heart of what made synthpop a juggernaut for almost two decades…it’s fresh, it’s fun, and it’s an excuse to dance your cares away. It also shows that Spray hasn’t lost a bit of their verve, crafting a near perfect pop gem that’s an earworm and a half. I dare you to listen to it only once…you can’t do it!
