Wonderful Humans

NYC synthpop with an '80s flavor: Wonderful Humans

NYC synthpop couple Wonderful Humans (who recently made our Best of 2015 Emerging NYC Bands list) unleashed a series of single in the last year that gathered interest on Soundcloud. Earlier this year they released "Just What I needed," which evokes East Village era Madonna. Yet, a practical approach to love, in lyrics like, “I wanted more/But I think you got it/Now that I know you're/Just what I wanted,” is a slightly-cynical reboot worthy of the Girls epoch. More recent single "Don't You" (streaming), references the '80s in a darker way, adding playful fake saxophones (an instrument that defined that decade) to an otherwise fully electronic arrangement.
