Label: All Hands Electric

The Electric Eyes single is the debut recording from the tech-noir group, Virginia Plain, fronted by Alfra Martini with support from Justin Miller and Christian Reinhardsen of Fono Luxe. The A-side, “Electric Eyes,” is a classic song sharing musical ties with synth pop pioneers OMD and the ’50s crooner vocal stylings of Bryan Ferry. The song kicks off with Martini’s voice gliding over bumping synth bass and 808 drum claps bringing to mind the melancholic pop sound of classic ’80s hits like Q Lazzurus’ “Goodbye Horses.” Side B’s “Swamp Thing” is the shadowy twin to the bright faced “Electric Eyes.” With it’s relentless “Doktor Avalanche” style beat and minor key synth lines the atmosphere turns from dreamy to sinister. — Midheaven
