July 2, 2019 — “Bright Lights” by LeBrock kicked off June as the first track playlisted and doubles up as the first single from the British duo’s upcoming third album. “Bright Lights” features a retro-inspired piano, powerful vocals, and riffing guitars. The vocals pair nicely with the track’s uplifting message to help anyone who’s been down in the dumps.
For the second track of June, we listed fresh track “End of Summer” by Michael Elliot and his guest vocalist Josie Tao. Elliot is an 80s-influenced producer hailing from Switzerland. After a single listen of their new track, you’ll appreciate fellow Switzerland talent Tao’s hypnotic vocals that lead the way, reminding you of every good summer moment you’ve had!
England-based Roxi Drive and Canadian prodigy Juno Dream bring us “Dangerous,” which became the third track #PAXWAVE listed for the month. “Dangerous” is a perfect song for any summer drive along the sea as the synth-pop sprinkled entry clearly takes inspiration from some of the most popular tracks from the 80s. The track features strong, catchy melodies that are sung in almost perfect harmony by Roxi Drive.
Hailing all the way from New Zealand, “L.D.L.A.” came in as the month’s fourth track listing by none other than female synthwave artist JJ Mist (hot off her recent album Communication.) Unsurprisingly (you’re reading a PAXINOMA blog-post after all!), the 80s inspired listing “L.D.L.A.” features funky guitar riffs which nudges your mind back in time and lets you revisit the neon-infused night clubs of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. JJ Mist rather candidly showcases her appreciation for Maddona’s “The Material Girl,” and you wouldn’t be the only one to mistake JJ’s latest album-release for a new Madonna record!
Finally, highly esteemed synthwave-act PYLOT came in as the last and fifth listing for June with new release “Fearless.” As always, PYLOT brings a distinctively atmospheric mood and the track’s synthwave piano play quickly moves the opening tease into a thumbing under a bed of skillfully crated instrumentation.
