New to Revival Synth..The debut album 'OXYJEAN' from the mysterious french musician/s PLAGIARYTHMS.
I'm unsure if it's a solo act or if they're a trio, looking at the video below, there's three members but that could be part of the enigma they are presenting to a listening audience.
Aside from that, I was delighted to receive the album a few weeks ago stating they had delved into the Revival Synth archives and taken influences of 'the now sound' and given it a 'retro future synth pop sound' blended with the sounds of a 1970s Jean-Michel Jarre. No mean feat, and as you will hear, they've pulled it off brilliantly!
Review..Classic era Jarre soundscapes of swoops and bleeps made it sound familiar but not derivative (the album title seems overly self depriciating).
Old favourite 'Voices' are given a fresh lick of paint and some of the new melodies had me toe tapping along with them, whilst in other places the atmospheric slower tracks are absolutely gorgeous in their swirling, layered beauty.
I'm absolutely the target audience for this genre, especially when it's done this well.
I considered Jarre's 2016 Equinoxe 3 to be a return to form for him. This album could sit easily alongside that.
It's the type of Jarre I've been waiting for! Steve aka One of The Crowd
THE FIRST SINGLE 'LATI' WAS RELEASED ON THE SAME DAY AS THE ALBUM. WATCH IT ON THE VIDEO BELOW, IT'S BRILLIANT!
