NightWaves: Sweet Carrie

Hook-filled synthpop ear-candy

NightWaves are a Los Angeles duo (Kyle Petersen and Josh Legg) whose synthpop is heavy on the hooks of classic radio pop. Their latest single is the sort of catchy confection that once populated MTV and formed a pillar of ‘80s New Wave radio formats. The production combines layers of synthesizers with an insistent rhythm guitar, a memorable vocal and a killer chorus. If you miss the Buggles, Human League, Depeche Mode, Yazoo (and the offshoot Assembly) and OMD, you’re sure to love this.

If you fashion yourself a remixologist, you can find the elements of the tune here as wave files. And you can find a number of other fan remixes here. [©2010 hyperbolium dot com]
