This is a very retro in its sound and I love it. I can hear influences of Depeche Mode and OMD in the choice of synths, this is a track that’s whisked me back to the early days of of synth pop in the 80s, the synth bass line is constant with the kick, the lead synth is playing very catchy melodies which is very on brand for that period of time.
I like the opening line of the lyrics:
“Can you feel my heart?
Racing like cars,
Can you see my eyes
Shining like stars…”
Antsy is a French indie pop solo project based in Reykjavik (Iceland).
Using ethereal synthesizers and punchy drum machines, Antsy’s music is straightforward and uptempo, with an underlying melancholy.
