The latest artist reveal on the upcoming The Rise of The Synths Companion Album is Austin-based Lazerhawk, who will contribute a new, original track. Follow the band on Facebook for band updates!
A founding member of Rosso Corsa, Lazerhawk is Garrett Hays from Austin, Texas, USA. His outrun electro is robot pop mixed with dark synths and the occasional lyric. Two years ago I described him as reminiscent of everything that was good in the ’80s: synthesizer jams with gargantuan leads, hard toms, spaced-out melody and the pains of being pure at heart. Since then he has experimented with chill wave and disco, but with a fundamental link to the ’80s.
The Rise of The Synths Companion Album will be out this spring. Listen to the debut single here.
THE RISE OF THE SYNTHS is a feature documentary directed by Iván Castell and produced by Javier Moreno with an amazing team from Spain. The film is the definitive documentary about synthwave and ’80s retro and electronic music. The filmmakers’ crowd-funding campaign is running right now.
