Episode 5: You Want It Darker

Ariel ZB Artwork

I like to listen to music that's upbeat and optimistic, but every once in a while I get a taste for something a bit...darker.  

We're going to wander into the world of dark synth for this episode.  We’ve got mostly instrumental jams, with some soulful new-wavey vocals here and there.  This is probably the most recognizably "80s" stuff that you've heard here; if you've ever seen any sci-fi or horror from that period, or if you’ve just seen the movie “Drive,” most of this will be pretty familiar.  

But remember, this is a modern interpretation of 80s synth.  There will be some surprises, so keep a look out.
