Out of Orbit
Electronic - Electronica
With Out of Orbit's overall unflinchingly 80's appeal, there is no denying that it is born out of an undeniable love for synth-pop. But merely putting Orbit in the synth-pop rubric is too simplistic for a record that brings into harmony a diverse range of sounds and styles that transcend what is commonly perceived of this genre. Amid its synth-pop backdrop, "Satellites Crashing," for instance, starts off with a dreamy trumpet piece that lasts for the length of the track, marrying seamlessly with some upright bass and laid back whispering drums, and makes it more of a jazzy downtempo piece.
