Occasionally, bands email me to introduce themselves and their music. Ingo from Model Worker emailed me using the subject line “New Wave is not dead” which is, of course, the tagline of this here (sadly neglected) little blog. It piqued my interest enough that I was sure to read the “pitch”. Which essentially was: “Check us out, we think you’ll like us.”
Their bio reads: “Model Worker are a four piece synth group from Chicago, formed in 2009. Created with an array of analog synthesizers, drum machines, and guitars, the sounds fall into the the New Wave / Synth Pop genre. The band has just released a new EP Squares & Triangles in late 2010. Check out model-worker.com for more information and some free downloads.”
I just listened to the 4 tracks and I gotta say they are rather catchy. It should appeal to any new wave, synthpop lovers out there. While the songs are bouncy enough, I think they beg to be remixed so to translate better for dance floors.
In any case, check out this group from Chicago. They’ll put a smile on your face by reminding you of a simpler time.
