The new Erasure’s album ‘World Be Gone’ appears to be an incredibly good Electro Pop material. One would recognize this from opener “Love You To The Sky”, which is as shamelessly upbeat as its name suggests. It acts, though, as a lure to draw one into more thoughtful territories driven by the duo’s need to address “important issues”: the pragmatic break-up of “A Bitter Parting” – Though we are oceans apart/ It seems you’re always there – might well be referencing Britain’s recent referendum, while “Still It’s Not Over”, a passionate torch song, celebrates the civil rights movement of vulnerable groups.
“Oh What A World”’s darker synth textures also suit Andy Bell’s despair well, while the beat-free “Take Me Out Of Myself” is as close as Vince Clark will ever get to ‘unplugging’, Bell’s frustrations delivered in an admirably level- headed fashion: Please talk to me/ As if I’m equal. They close things more optimistically, Bell insisting, against twinkling synths on “Just A Little Love”.
Nonetheless, it’s “Sweet Summer Loving”, that documents, in unequivocal terms, Bell’s romantic reawakening after his partner’s death in 2012, that lingers longest.
Below you can watch the performance of their newest single “Love You To The Sky” which is personally my favorite track from this record.

Decipher The Tarot Cards With DESIRE In “Days & Nights” Video
DESIRE‘s new single “Days & Nights” is a masterpiece both aesthetically and musically. Tarot cards, a crystal ball, and the art of intuitive reading are the main elements of these mind-blowing visuals.
So far, “Telling Me Lies” is my favorite song off their most recent Electro-Pop album, ‘Escape.’
However, “Days & Night” is just as good as I expected it to be. In short, you can expect a love song bruised with anxiety…
Written and produced by Johnny Jewel, you’re about to enjoy another enigmatic piece featuring Megan Louise’s iconic vocals, accompanied by dark nuances intertwined with a dense layer of synthesizers.
If anyone is wondering about the symbolism of those Tarot cards seen in the opening scene of the video, here’s a good basic explanation:
XV. The Devil: Don’t get scared! It actually means addiction, compulsion, or obsession. Indeed, we all have devils within us, the seeds of bad things we’re usually able to stop ourselves from doing.
XIII. The Death: It has nothing to do with its literal meaning. On the contrary, this card foretells transformation and rebirth. Perhaps, a new cycle is beginning and so a maturing phase.
XII. The Hanged Man (reversed): Impatience, not willing to wait or accept something.
One way or another, all these cards capture the plot line behind the lyrics of “Days & Nights.”
Besides that, DESIRE’s ample creativity marks the difference, as usual, leaving fans eager for more.

Jbledz And Alec Galloway Are Reviving Nostalgia For 80’s Synthpop
Conjuring an overall air of 80s nostalgia, Jbledz and Alec Galloway transport you to a different time. There’s no arguing that the driving force behind “Don’t Fade” lies in the synthesizers, which highlight the melodious vocals and falsettos.
I can easily imagine myself singing “Don’t Fade” at the top of my lungs in the car, on the bus, or even in the shower. Of course, in a positive way, it’s extremely catchy and stunning.
Definitely, it’s just feel-good music!
In addition, you can tell inspiration was taken from the likes of Kavinsky and The Weeknd. Once you hit the play button below, there’s no turning back…
No doubt, Jbledz is on another level of what truly is conveying your emotions on a song. Actually, he feels what he sings as he pours out all the frustration over an abusive relationship.
On top of that, his lyrics can further prove intimate and personal experiences can connect with listeners right away. Strangely, being taken advantage of by someone you care about is so relatable these days.
“Don’t Fade” not only revives amazing things like 80’s Synthpop but also wounds of the past that warn you to make better decisions.
The best way to avoid being played is to make yourself aware of the signs of manipulation, and take prompt action when it happens.
