The Post-Punk Glory Of Static
A fresh release from Static breeds some post-punk love with a dark undertone and some retro synths and harmonies to create a record with the genuine aesthetic of alt-pop from years passed.
The When I'm Falling EP is colorful and full of hooks both musically and vocally as it plays through.
The sonic tonality of the songs are damn near perfect whole roto-toms and soft digital keys keep you floating along in the songs aether.
This record is like swimming in a neon lit ocean as purples and pinks gleam into the night sky.
Vocal are heartfelt and at times gives off a bit of a Placebo feel, while you can hear the 80's synth-pop influence pour through with a passion.
These tracks shine and feel like they have soul and life to them. Maybe because they are built from personal experience and emotionally driven. Maybe because Static has a love for this craft. Either way this is an alluring record that will give you the warm and fuzzies, especially if you grew up in the 80's or even have a love for the genre.
This EP certainly does have a cinematic undertone to it as well and brings in some dream-pop and coldwave elements in the mix to blend in a current style.
Static released a string of singles along with this EP throughout the greater part of 2020 and every single track is well worth a good listen because if you love one of them, you will love them all guaranteed.
So if you want some good, genuinely retro post-punk, you've come to the right place. Static will not let you down.
