Psychobuildings put the 80s sound in a blender

Psychobuildings put the 80s sound in a blender

Brooklyn's Psychobuildings latest self-titled EP sounds like a sonically lush and somewhat bizarre reinterpretation of the sound of the 80s. While listening to this record our ear kept detecting a myriad of elements reminiscent of many of our favorite electronic bands from that decade, in particular Japan, Duran Duran, and early Simple Minds - vocalist Peter LaBier could be the new Jim-Kerry-before-he-went-mainstream (revisit the Scottish band's first 4 albums if you don't know what I'm talking about). Even though the band's choice of sounds has strong ties with the "decade of the mullet", the final result is actually extremely original, their songs coming across like a weirdly "re-processed" version of something you are already very familiar with, but that's not quite the same.
