Taking a tip from one of my favorite artists, I gave a listen for the first time to John Maus today.
I’m happy to say, I’m an insta-fan.
Maus has managed to dip back into a sound reminiscent of a true 80’s soundtrack, rife with diluted, reverb-soaked vocals, a distant synth river streaming out of reach and a bass line that finds the beat right on time. Some artists struggle to really adopt the synthy electro goo that they reach for, but Maus has done it almost too well, sounding straight out of the 80s with a rare sound proving he’s current.
He’s on Facebook.
