As a child of the 80’s I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for the “sound” that existed back then. Tesla Boy, from Russia, does an amazing job incorporating those sounds combined with today’s modern sound. This song in particular makes me think of those crazy nights where you just straight up abuse your body, but hey, at least it was fun right?

“Tesla Boy is the hottest band to come out of Russia since…well, probably ever! Although the band was formed in late 2008, they have yet to be labeled by anyone as “newcomers” to the electro-pop scene. It’s all here – dreamy melodies, Moroder-esque basslines, melancholic sleazy vocals, and glittering synth hooks that are to die for. Yes, fans of that 80s Synthpop/New Wave sound are in for a real treat – but Tesla Boy isn’t purely retro…oh no! Lovers of contemporary bands such as Cut Copy, Zoot Woman, Empire Of The Sun and Junior Boys won’t be able to resist Tesla Boy’s incredible modernistic style.”
