Saturday, stay retro: DeltaCity – Highway Runner #synth #80s #electronic

Synthwave is a tricky genre. All too often I find it too stuck in the 80s. But DeltaCity make a virtue of the retro on Highway Runner (itself a totally 80s title).

DeltaCity are Phil Chrysandrea with the music production and Tony Stavrou on vocals. They should really be from Los Angeles but instead they are from the UK. Highway Runner opens with soaring synths and a I-have-a-dream reshash from motivational speaker Les Brown who comes on in full preacher mode before the vocals come in. There’s even the excitement of added sax.  They deliver on thir promise that “you will be transported back to a time when double denim and shutter shades was the norm on every neon soaked dance floor…” Turn up your jacket sleeves and turn back time.
