Synth-wave duo New Shack have released their new dark-pop single ‘Achilles’.
The duo, Cat Leavy and Eric Robertson, based in Provo, Utah create a retro mix of analogue synth tracks and dreamy pop vocals that carry intimate and abstract lyrics.
‘Achilles’ has a spacey vibe, with the record crackles sound like you’re in space. The keys also create a dancy synthscape dreaming up some 80’s to early 00’s indie pop like that from Purity Ring.
Speaking of the track, the band said: “Achilles explores dichotomies – opposing personalities, ideologies, and inner lives. On a more literal level, it explores themes of self-medication and being in a relationship with those behaviours and tendencies.”
Make sure you add this track to your driving playlist as this vintage-inspired classic is not worth missing.
