You can’t beat a bit of nostalgia. It sells. And it’s sexy as hell. Or at least it is when it’s done by Danish four-piece Communions. Having matured from the garage rock roots of their 2014 debut “Cobblestones”, their trajectory into a more '80s pop-inspired sound seems to be very much continuing with their first release in over a year.
Shimmering guitars, dainty synths, and frontman Martin Rehof’s trademark vocally androgynous yearnings all come together to create a track that’s akin to a sonic version of an early '80s VHS prom video.
Reflecting on the song's apparent retro sound, the band says: "I think what we like about the '80s mainly has a lot to do with the sound of the studio production, a lot of which has a kind of ethereal and gradiose quality to it."
