Candy Apple Blue’s new single

Here’s the new single from Candy Apple Blue, continuing their mission to bring their DIY retro Pop to the masses.

Harkening back to classic male/female vocal call-and-response track of the 80’s, ‘Caught Up In To’ is nostalgic 80’s soundtrack pop reinvented for the BedroomPop era. The synth arrangement is particularly pleasing, intertwining analog melodies to keep every synthesizer fan happy. Candy Apple Blue unashamedly wear their influences on their sleeve, and while many exaggerate their 80’s roots or pepper them over contemporary tracks, Candy Apple Blue make authentic sounding 80’s hits. Every song from them could be an undiscovered one-hit-wonder from ‘85.

Like a raw, punky version of Roxette, Pittsbergh based Indie-ElectroPop twosome Candy Apple Blue create music that sounds like a DIY take on 80’s stadium Pop.

Their new single ‘Tricks’ could easily be on the soundtrack to an 80’s Teen dramedy, maybe something Schumacher. I don’t really like using the term ‘New Wave’, I’m not sure it exists, or if it ever did (I’m of the opinion that is was invented just so Geffen could sell British SynthPop artists to the US rock market packaged with UK Post-Punk imports) but Candy Apple Blue are pretty New Wave. In the sense that they combine elements of SynthPop, Post-Punk Indie and 80’s Songwriting into a catchy sing-along package, which is actually a style that not many people are doing these days, sure there are loads of 80’s sounding ElectroPop acts but the likes of Candy Apple Blue are far to rare. We will be watching them with interest.
