On a website about, let’s face it, a lot of 80’s influenced music to say a band sounds really 80’s seems a bit moot, but Brooklyn’s Selebrities sound really 80’s!

And I don’t mean in a Dreamwave, 80’s soundtrack, way, more in the back of a dingy SynthPop/Goth club way. From the sweeping analog synth sounds to the Peter Hook inspired bass to the boarderline Siouxsie Sioux vocals this is real Post-Punk synth synth. Saying that though, it also manages to be poppy as hell, setting it apart from the similarly influenced Coldwave/Minimal Synth sound.

The track ‘Audition’ from their début EP, ‘Ladies Man Effect’, is a perfect example of how they inject a touch of glamour and catchiness into, what is, quite a dark sound.
