Freescha’s new album sounds like a collection of ’80s synthpop sans vocals. Occasionally there are voice-like instruments (or heavily distorted voices—it’s hard to tell), but the focus is definitely Human League-era melodies and aesthetics. And the cover art matches perfectly.
This isn’t just a concept album. These themes are a continuation of Freescha’s previous releases. It’s as though this Californian duo is fleshing out an alternate universe where synthpop still rules. And I can’t get their tunes out of my head.
