The Values offer tons of energy on "Imposter"

The Values offer tons of energy on "Imposter"

So many bands attempt to replicate the sound of the 80’s without understanding the nuance of what made music from that era great: it was loud, fun and not afraid to commit to those tenets. Luckily, bands like The Values prove they can capture synth-pop nostalgia and transform it into a 21st-century extravaganza. On single “Imposter,” fat, bubbling synths quickly build to an energetic peak that the track maintains through shimmering guitars and a distinct millennial message of feeling paranoid about one’s own genuineness. The track is almost effortless in its recreation of Madonna levels of glamour and bravado, yet "Imposter" exists in its own realm, a product of its time and place, and feels fresh beacuse of that. You can stream the duo’s new song below. –Tucker Pennington
