Detroit, MI – Electronic/synthpop artist Scandroid has released the new single, “Afterglow” from his upcoming album Monochrome. The track showcases infectious retro-synth sounds with melodic vocal hooks, while incorporating accents of energetic guitars.
“A bevy of hardware synths were used on this track, from bass-lines from my Roland Juno-60 and Dave Smith / Tom Oberheim OB-6 to leads from my Korg PolySix, Yamaha Reface CS and Roland Juno-106. This track also has one of the more obvious uses of distorted guitar on the album. When I finished cutting vocals for this track, I already knew this one was going to be up front on the album. I’m hoping that people still like dancing in the year 2518 and they’ll play this song in some underground retro club.” – Klayton (Scandroid)
Monochrome releases October 27th an is available for pre-order on CD, limited edition cassette or digital download at https://fanlink.to/monochrome
Featuring 14 tracks, from the retro-synth pop hooks of “Afterglow,” “Rendezvous,” “Future Bloodline,” and “A Thousand Years,” to the instrumental epics “Oblivia” and “Searching for a Lost Horizon,” Monochrome imagines an alternate future where truth is hidden in “Monochrome.”
The album includes modern synthwave covers of John Williams’ famous Star Wars opus “The Force Theme” as well as a hauntingly powerful cover of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” to be released on Friday the 13th of October. The album concludes with a bonus remix of “Thriller” from mysterious synthwave artist/producer PYLOT.
Following the international success of the debut Scandroid album (Top 10 iTunes Electronic Album USA, Russia, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, Australia & #5 Billboard Electronic Album), Monochrome continues the journey of ‘Red’ & ‘Aphelion’ in a cyberpunk storyline set in Neo-Tokyo in the year 2518.
“…in a world of color, I see in Monochrome.”
