but can they WRITE any songs?
Yeah this just seems like some kids who took piano lessons and had the money to get like 00+ worth of vintage synthesizers, I don't really get the appeal.

The original link also links to their bandcamp. I only listened to a few songs from their new EP but what I've heard is really good! Not the best synthpop I've heard recently, but the song Suitcase is definitely going to be a bike song.

Ok, if they're doing original stuff then I retract my previous post.

I'm still not into nostalgia and revivalism, though. Most of the new 80s retro synth stuff is no more interesting than something like The Stray Cats or Daddy Cool. I reserve judgement on these kids because I don't have time to listen to their originals before work and probably won't remember after.

I found these guys while bunny-trailing off of the synth videos posted earlier this week. I've been away from the internet for a few weeks so I don't know how the "evolution of music technology" meme started; I just thought it was neat to see 15-year-olds playing 35-40 year old techno.

Anyways, these guys have a bunch original stuff on youtube and on their band camp. All of your complaints are WRONG

I don't really have a problem with it; it happens with punk all the time. You could put on an early Red Kross song and an early Black Lips song and I probably couldn't tell you who was who. The difference to me between Brian Setzer, Cherry Poppin Daddies and the like is that it's not necessarily a "revival" like it was with swing, it's just using a lot of the same instruments to create new stuff. There is an intentional "80s/90s" aesthetic which I believe began being popularized with Neon Indian's old band VEGA (I'm probably wrong) and Ariel Pink's side project, but that doesn't make it sound like a rip off of classic synthy 80s songs like Never Gonna Give U Up and the like, which is what the swing revival thrived on.

That guy
I hate this.
