What's This?

Remember the time when 80s nostalgia was a thing of the past? Yeah? Well, it wasn’t long ago that M83 brought it roaring back did we begin to take note. Ever since then, we’ve held a certain unanswered respect for the style which has almost become a genre within itself. After being on the constant lookout for the next 80s revivalists, we came across Strange Talk. Now, you may remember them from their sparkly dance single “Climbing Walls” from a little over a year ago, but if you’ve had your ear to the ground anytime recently you’ll know that the band will be releasing a new album within the next couple weeks. From that forthcoming album is the band’s latest single, “Cast Away.” Having been on the turntables for a couple months, it wasn’t until recently when the band released the video for the single did we feel it was in our own best interest to share the song with you lovely people. To make the similarities between themselves and M83 even more pronounced, the video features a group of young children roaming the desolate streets before causing a little destruction—which may or may not sound familiar to some of you. Nevertheless, this spritely electro-pop single makes for one fantastic earworm, and you can be sure that it will soon fill the walls of your local American Apparel or Urban Outfitters.
