NRW Records bring hope to New Wave/Synthwave/Electro-Pop artists out there. Most of the label’s releases have been featured on Netflix movies and TV shows. For instance, Death Note, Family Guy, and the latest Godzilla franchise have praised their music catalog. Nowadays, it seems this electronic music genre influenced by the 80s films is on everyone’s lips.
The label’s latest project is entitled ‘Akuma II’ by Alex & Tokyo. The nostalgic approach of the first single “Affliction” is evident due to the use of retro synthesizers + analog effects. With dark tones, this is a tune that could perfectly work in any science fiction drama. On a side note, the album itself charted at #5 on Billboard’s Electronic Album Chart. In my opinion, a well-deserved position for both, the artists and NewRetroWave Records. Stream in full below.
