Synth City!

Synth City!

As the dust settled following the punk rock explosion, countless new genres emerged. Chief among these was Synth Pop – a suitably descriptive umbrella for the new electronic pop sound which had emerged, inspired by the likes of Kraftwerk. While synthesizers had previously perhaps been considered a novelty, come the 1980s, this new sound swiftly become the most vital, modern and energetic musical movement on the planet. We represent the rights to a range of Synth Pop tracks from the New Romantic era  – from major artists such as Toyah, Howard Jones and Kim Wilde to obscurities from the likes of Thomas LeerKevin Harrison, Eyeless In Gaza and The Passage (pictured).
