About

-Clive lewis, Electronic Rumors-
London based SynthWave tinged ElectroPoppers Le Cassette recently dropped another one of their blissful retro jams. Fresh from their appearance on KEIZ BEATS’ Retro Futuristic Sounds compilation, Le Cassette are going from strength to strength.

This new track, Arms Of Mine, is a rich, emotional SynthPop track that references both American electronic ‘80’s movie soundtrack music and a very British style of vintage Pop. A mid-paced tune, Arms Of Mine, counterpoints pulsing robotic synths with a warm, emotive vocal and sparkling lead lines. It’s an electronic lament of a track, slow glides along with real passion until reaching it’s finale of full-on Electro chainsaw synths in a satisfying conclusion.

-The Vibe Massive-
Heard this yesterday for the first time and really enjoyed it.
This original by Le Cassette reminds me strongly of Anoraak meets Depeche Mode-esque vocals, which is an A+ combination in my books.

-Ricks Shithouse, Synthetix-
Le Cassette's work in channelling authentic 80s pop synth has been taken to a new level of majesty with their song Arms Of Mine. When a band like this get everything so exceptionally right it bears noting as it's such a rarity to have a fully authentic 80s sound both instrumentally and vocally.

Arms Of Mine trancends time and brings everything back to 1984 to the epicentre of classic UK synthpop. Equal measures of many classic 80s bands of that period can be heard in this track, but theres a genuine identity to Le Cassette's sound the makes this much more than just an homage.

The slow and deliberate pace of this song makes it's emotional lyrics manifest even deeper with each word hanging, longing and pained on each note of the melodies. The presence in the voice is undeniable, melding musically with ebbs and flows of the synthscapes, making for a single coherent experience that feels true and natural.

Although Arms Of Mine is not available to buy anwhere as yet, I'm hoping for an impending EP release from Le Cassette in the near future, to keep informed of all the happenings with this wonderfully complex and inspired band please follow them on their soundcloud here and give them some love of their Facebook page here while you're at it.
