This bouncy synth-pop single brings memories of 80’s New Wave, from the different textures of keyboard to the big reverb and the groovy sequencing. Attraction, the latest from Seattic, is a worthy extension of that dance-oriented style, and the counterpoint between finely-tuned waveforms will feel immediately familiar.
The pop-oriented breaks, the gated snare, even the tom-fills are on point with both a retro sound and a modern production edge. With the recent resurgence of vaporwave and other New Wave references, this song fits easily into the more energetic side of that landscape next to proto-bands like New Order and The Psychedelic Furs. Attraction is a fun look at the stay-or-go moment of real potential, and the hastily-made decisions of youth.
Seattic is the solo project from Adrian Osman, Melbourne-based songwriter and former lead guitarist of Brisbane rock outfit Tourism. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
