Retro Synthwave from Sweden!
The world is on fire. Great nations are being run by mad men. Humanity is in a daze. Civilization, as we know it, could be facing collapse within decades. These and other existential fears and observations of modern life helped Swedish act The Secret Chord give birth to their debut album 'Tranquility Base'. Now in partnership with Aztec Records they are bringing the deluxe edition with an exclusive new single, an acoustic rendition of “When we're dancing” and remixes by Emilio Asstevez, Friday Night Firefight, Miami Glow, Ends 84 and Fulvio Colasanto.
These profound ideas exposed in the deceivingly simple lyrics are set to music heavily influenced by the brilliant and playful sounds of the mid-eighties. Joakim's kaleidoscope production in conjunction with honey-drip vocals by Ida Trosell and Johannes Kotschy create an album of significance and relevance. The album is an homage to masterpieces like A-ha's 'Hunting High and Low', Depeche Mode's 'Black Celebration', Erasure's 'Wonderland' and Peter Gabriel's 'So', combined with the classic movie soundtracks of the now iconic decade.
They say still waters run deep. No better analogy for this collection of pop songs that carry a very profound message to the listeners.
