‘Temporary Heaven’, by Oakland California band, Introflirt, is set for release tomorrow, August 12.
We wrote about Introflirt’s song, ‘Frozen Lace‘, back in June, saying that it was “a downtempo track, synth-led and dreamy” – the entire album is like that, eminently listenable on repeat. If you’re a fan of 80s British new wave music by bands such as Depeche Mode or The Human League, this is for you. It’s so much more than that though. Introflirt deal in “croonwave”: they take that 80s new wave sound and drop it into the 1940s, making a whole other genre.
Check out ‘Temporary Heaven’ on Bandcamp. It’s available to download for $7, and as a limited edition cassette (only ONE HUNDRED are available!), shipped on or around August 20.
