Inspired by another recent synthwave post here, I thought I’d share a different aspect of the genre. Whereas a lot of synthwave has a dystopian John Carpenter feel to it (which I think is great!), tons of groups sit on the other thematic side of 80s throwback, having a more upbeat John Hughes movie kinda sound.

These Australian dudes rarely release new music but everything they touch seems to end up perfect. If you like poppy 80s sounds, incredible vocals, and campy SciFi you’ll probably love this. They’ve developed a whole SciFi universe to go along with their music and bill themselves as, “The Interstellar Synthwave Band.”
