New Audio: French Artist Vlöe’s Nostalgic, Retro-Futuristic Synth Pop

Vlöe is a French electronic music composer, singer/songwriter and producer, whose work draws from synth pop and synth wave — with a touch of the 90s European demoscene.

The French artist recently released a new, three-track mini-EP. The mini-EP’s latest single “Lying In The Sun” is a retro-futuristic bit of synth pop featuring layers of shimmering synth arpeggios, driving motorik-like grooves, thumping metronomic-like beats, an 80s synth rock guitar solo, and achingly plaintive vocals. Rooted in the nostalgia of being young and lying around on a sunny day with a dear one, “Lying In The Sun” brings M83, Washed Out, and the Stranger Things soundtrack to mind.
