The forthcoming album from French electro-pop artist and mastermind, Anthony Gonzales, continues to transform shooting lasers and dull vocals into star-gazing beautiful, pseudo 80′s music with a dancing beat. Without surprise, the background wails and synths did not get left in Saturdays=Youth (2008) successful dust. Few could part with it.
What continues to amaze though is the integration of genre specific blow outs like the saxophone attack mid-song in this track. It’s not hard to imagine why White Mountaineer’s Morgan Kibby was recruited to the team among the band of boys including, Loïc Maurin, and Pierre-Marie Maulini. The outer space milieu set by the obscurely hazy moments of indie throughout his music simulates your own ride on the Milky Way.
