Contrary to popular view, 80s pop music had a lot of potential beneath plenty of stuff we’re still trying to forget about. To hear a musician with the insight to bring to life the potential of a bygone musical era is a breath of fresh air. Steel Empires is one of these modern day musical visionaries I’m talking about. In his latest effort, “Seduction,” the NYC producer pairs bubbly and hard synth sounds with guitar-based dance pop to create something that pulses comfortably between the grounds of Talking Heads and CHVRCHES.
