I’m a sucker for 80s rock, its often very cheesy, but that somehow is a part of its lovable charm. These days a lot of bands are drawing from 80s synth-pop, including Berlin-based trio Ballet School. On September 9 they will release their new album The Dew Lasts An Hour via Bella Union.
First single “Cherish” has shimmering synths and powerful percussion, but its built on the showstopping vocals of Rosie Blair. These guys sound polished, and know how to pack on layers and layers of hooks. “Cherish” is a larger than life pop song, the stuff that would be blasting on the radio, if we were only so lucky.
