Crystal Bridge

Crystal Bridge

Russian duo Crystal Bridge stopped by the electronic rumors inbox recently to prove one again that when it comes to retro SynthPop music, Russia is leading the pack. Taking more of a cue from the likes of Tesla Boy rather than their SynthWave peers, Crystal Waters produce some excellent New Wave tinged ElectroPop.

The two original tracks on the SoundCloud are quite different beasts, held together by a nostalgic ‘80’s sound and a nod towards teen movies of that era. The Secret Letter Or Two Overboard could quite honestly have been taken from the soundtrack to any number of John Hughes or Joel Schumacher(pre-Nipples Batman) movies. Bright, shimmering synths play out melodies that feel strangely familiar against a brooding soundtrack of dramatic tones. On No Account Don’t Choose, on the other hand, is a jump up vocal SynthPop track full of twisting retro leads and slick guitar. Deeply seeped in carefree American ‘80’s Pop, On No Account Don’t Choose is a catchy, exuberant display of what Crystal Bridge can do. More pleases.
