A Look Back At Enzo Sprigg’s Static Laden Electro Pop Album ‘Television Graveyard’

Published

on

Enzo Sprigg album review
Composing music is just one of the many artistic activities carried out by Enzo Sprigg. Last year, after having reviewed his album ‘Cosmic Bipolar Nebula’, you and I felt pretty much satisfied with almost all the Electro Pop songs. Therefore I decided to look back at his music catalog, where I find another material with sonic surprises, called ‘Television Graveyard’. Launched in 2015, Enzo demonstrates a fascination of experimenting with electronic music. Broadly speaking, this album features a total of 12 tunes, where heavy/spooky synths are the primary element. Not to mention, distorted sound effects that bring to mind badly damaged televisions, which in some way referred to the album’s imaginative title. Add to that original lyrics with a dark undertone. Making himself known as an artist with daring imagination. Definitely, a must listen!

On the other hand, the first track, “Television Graveyard” is a favorite among fans. He delivers an interesting pace, which combines driven industrial-tinged textures and noise machines. But I think what I liked about it the most is that I can feel the emotion through his vocals. Check out the illustrated visuals below and see the transformation of Enzo into a superhero. Followed by a small Q&A to get to know more about this intriguing project.

1 – Looking back on this previous album, what were you trying to accomplish musically with Television Graveyard?

At the time I really wanted that album to be a vast departure from my first record. I wanted to blend synthpop style songwriting with a much more course, almost harsh and stripped down music production. Sometimes electronic music can feel a bit too sterile so I wanted to avoid that. Conversely, so I wanted the songwriting to be more accessible and lyrically memorable. Songs like Slick Disaster and Television Graveyard are good examples of the sound I wanted the album to have.

2 – Is it true that you hand drew and animated the Television Graveyard music video entirely on your own? Can you explain that process more?

Being an artist by trade, animating one of my music videos was a dream of mine. I was worried that the workload would overwhelm me though. Then I figured I would just use my Samsung note phone to draw all the elements. I tend to draw on it a lot when I have spare time so that worked out well. I would do the drawings when I had a spare moment and then I’d animate and sequence the elements when there was hope. I was going for a rough, undergrown comic feel. I felt it would express the pirate radio station feel of TVG so well. I’m really happy with how it came out and I’m hoping to do part two of the story in the future.

3 – What did you learn from making Television Graveyard that helped you with making your latest album, Cosmic Bipolar Nebula?

Enzo: Well I think every album teaches you a great deal about music production and recording. Secondly, just finishing a record gives you a lot more confidence that you can keep the creative process going. Television Graveyard did both those things for me. That album was also a very external album lyrically. I wrote about people and situations outside of myself. I think that’s what lead me to write more internally on Cosmic Bipolar Nebula. I wanted to continue the catchy songcraft of TVG but go more personal and deeper with the current album. In hindsight I’m proud of each album, mainly because they can stand on their own, show growth and feel like a progression. That’s all I could ever hope for.

Eivind Husebø
‘s “Around The World” gets a striking 80s remix. Norwegian Producer Plextro aka Gated Reverb offers a unique spin to the original rockish song that is for sure a crowd-pleaser. One way or another, this new version is taking you on a trip to a retrofuturistic atmosphere. Undoubtedly, it’s 100% fun, infectious, and different.

I think the outcome turned out splendidly due to its Synthwave/Electro-Pop elements. The driving synths are an explosion of ecstasy and pleasure to the ears. Here, Eivind is demonstrating how versatile can sound his tracks with such a high-profile collaboration. What’s more, vocals remain untouched as they flow over booming drums daring you to dance. Besides that, its positive message that awakens in you the desire to win the world also prevails. Taking everything into account, it will be only a matter of time until you see him at the top of the game.

Furthermore, this Electro-Pop tune radiates with perfect 80s vibes, which is part of his signature funky style. Nobody will make you want to dance like Roosevelt. The German singer has a voice that stands out so much when the background synths come into action. This is absolutely amazing, and all his fans are already eager to hear the next tracks. He is still signed to Greco-Roman, a record label based in Berlin and London. Enjoy.

Experience Now This Feel-Good Jam Called “Downbeat” By Trynket

Filipino-born singer, songwriter, and filmmaker Trynket is set to make her name in the global Pop scene. What’s particularly jaw-dropping about “Downbeat” is surely its feel-good nature.

Trynket

Filipino-born singer, songwriter, and filmmaker Trynket is set to make her name in the global Pop scene. What’s particularly jaw-dropping about “Downbeat” is surely its feel-good nature. This jam sounds way different from her emotive ballad “Picture (In My Brain)”, which became her debut single and reached over 40K streams on Spotify in 2019.

Conversely, with “Downbeat” she invites you to dance without shame and move your hips like nobody’s watching. Inspired by Synthpop hits from the 80s, plus, unforgettable R&B cuts from the 90s, I think she’s artistically in the right direction. As a result, this particular blend of genres represents a breath of fresh air that is much needed in today’s saturated music industry.

Believe it or not, for the past two years Trynket has been recording upbeats tracks in Los Angeles. Since early childhood, she proved to be a natural talent. Not to mention, she composed her own songs at the age of five after starting piano lessons. Nowadays, she is blessed with a beautiful voice that fits well in any style. I can guarantee the music video for “Downbeat” is as good as the track itself. If you would like to transport yourself to a much warmer place, then I recommend you to watch it. There’s also a super fun choreography in this clip that could go viral on TikTok. Don’t miss it.

Of course, all these songs include haunting sonic elements, seductive vocals, and an irresistible dark atmosphere. Interestingly enough, classical piano pieces served as the raw material of this EP. Consequently, I bet you’ll be listening to it on repeat.

Are you feeling nostalgic today? The retro music era comes to life through NINA‘s new video for “The Calm Before The Storm”. Watching the clip’s 80s vibes makes me think this is a trend that will stay for a long time. Artists like The Weeknd, Kylie Minogue, and even Miley Cyrus are taking the same direction.

Actually, NINA is a pioneer of the Synthwave style much before them. This talented lady from Germany sings from the heart and that’s exactly my favorite part. The contagious chorus of this single taken from her last album, ‘Synthian’ does not fail to impress too. A room with coin-operated arcade video games, plus, the retro-styled car could not be absent in the amazing visuals produced by Final Films. Enjoy it.

Lyrics

You cross the line
In disguise
Now you’re standing all alone

You change your looks
Change your name
You’re still running on your own (You’re still running)

Looking back
It was all too clear like written on the wall

And it’s alright
But you fear the worst is yet to come along
This is…

The calm before the storm
(I surrender)
The calm before the storm
(I surrender)

For every step, every turn,
There are shadows standing tall
Broken promises
Something’s waiting in the sky

Looking back
It was all too clear like written on the wall

And it’s alright
But you fear the worst is yet to come along
This is…

The calm before the storm
(I surrender)
The calm before the storm
(I surrender)

How did it come to this?
 Why am I always on the run from you?
Is this reality?
 We have forever lost the truth of our despair
There is no doubt that we
Should gather strength and be prepared for what’s to come
It seems I’m losing you
And the only place that I can breathe again
Is in in your arms

The calm before the storm
(I surrender)
The calm before the storm
(I surrender)
