Floor People – “Love at First Sound”
“Love at First Sound” is an excellent single from Floor People, a band based in Boston with roots in Buffalo, NY. This is captivating, infectious synth-pop fond of both hooks and atmospheric construction, particularly fit for ’80s nostalgia with shades of Yellow Magic Orchestra, Squeeze, and Pet Shop Boys. The driving synths and electrifying vocals both cast a superb mood, theatrical-sounding while simultaneously yearning and melodic. This is the first of hopefully several singles from the band this year, as they plan on releasing more tracks throughout the summer.
The band says of the track: “The lyrics explore a loving relationship with music, itself. It is a relationship of devotion that is at times obsessive and unhealthy.”
“Love at First Sound” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2019’ Spotify playlist.
The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Catchy Electro and Synth-Pop.
