College, in founder David Grellier’s words, was an attempt “to synthesize into my music the emotions of my childhood” and was greatly influenced by American 1980s pop-culture, “80’s soaps and an aesthetic which I particularly like: color, images, silvery films and the sun – images of Los Angeles, Chicago and all of the other cities that continue to fascinate me.”
While he’s certainly into laser-guided synth lines and sepia-toned nostalgia trips, Frédéric Rivière’s debut album as Anoraak (Wherever the Sun Sets) is more indebted to Italo disco, Motown-schooled funk and sepia-toned pop music—think: M83 on Ecstasy—than anything that’s lo-or-glo-fi.
Electric Youth is named after an album by Debbie Gibson, who along with Tiffany was the quintessential late-’80s American bubblegum teen pop girl A young couple from Canada Bronwyn and Austin of Electric Youth is part of the same amorphous community of pop-obsessed bloggers and music makers who chill wave and witch house crew, but unlike say Teengirl fantasy they do not use POP language and imagery as a front for a more avant-garde exploration of this territory.
