Neuropa

 

There’s a lyric in the Bloc Party song ‘Song For Clay (Disappear Here)’ that states, ‘Live the dream like the 80’s never happened,’ which in my personal opinion is one of the most terrifying things I have ever heard. It would make for an interesting case of future shock then if Australia’s Neuropa had bought last year’s Resistor album out, had the 80’s never happened. It’s almost if an interdimensional being ripped through space and time, to pilfer a finished album out of the back pockets of Duran Duran, Depeche Mode or any great synthpop band of the era. And that is in all means a compliment of the highest regard. In an album crammed full of earworms, hooks and consistent foot-tappers, Confession has the memorable synth-lead, snapping snare, popstar voice and infectious chorus perfected, in five minutes of nostalgia that is still as refreshing 30 years later.
