NYC Synth Pop bands on the rise: Meridian

NYC Synth Pop bands on the rise: Meridian

Somewhere between Prince and Def Leppard, NYC group Meridian is a fuzzed-out, synth-laden, soulful tribute to 80's soundtracks and acid-washed denim. Their sound washes over you and lifts you into the ether with invigorating melodies and thoughtful songwriting.  The video for their lush summer jam “Magic” (streaming) shows principal songwriters Yohimbe Sampson and Bradley Valentin on a mystical quest through the haunting menagerie of Brooklyn’s subconscious gauntlet. Replete with painted angels, shadow-drenched choreography, and jaw-dropping costume design, it will certainly leave you spellbound.  Visit their site for a free album download! - BrokeMC
