Nostalgic shades of ’80s rock and synth-pop alike are abundant throughout “New Experience,” a stellar debut single from Guest Singer, a project created by Doncaster’s Jake Cope and comprising Paul Burdett and France Lahmar. They recently signed with Manchester-based label Heist or Hit. On this track, Guest Singer team up with producer Matt Peel (Eagulls, Pulled Apart By Horses, Menace Beach) for a polished, nostalgic result. Parts War on Drugs, The Killers, and Springsteen, “New Experience” builds steadily from synth flourishes and a lush bass line into a series of anthemic vocal deliveries and glistening guitar emphasis.
