Don’t ask me why, but there’s certainly an 80′s technopop revival going on, and let’s be honest, that’s no bad thing! Over the last few months this blog has featured tracks from the likes of Washed Out, Geoffrey O’Conner and College, each of whom have been channeling the 80′s in their own unique synth-inspired ways. Today I’d like to add the Brooklyn-four piece Ice Choir to that list and share with you their first single Two Rings which they released just last week.
Coming across like a mixture of New Order, Pet Shop Boys and Tears for Fears – Ice Choir is the personal project of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart member Kurt Feldman. Their track Two Rings features some sweet vocals and some terrific icy synths. It is the first single from their as-yet-untitled debut album which is due out next year. The single is available to buy as a limited-edition pressing here.
