Passenger S turns on his radio once more after the release of the well-received companion CD albums “FM88.2” and “AM1350” (and “MW720” on digital platforms).
The two new 808 DOT POP EP’s “FM96.9” and “AM1040” both place the second single, “Distant Voices” in the spotlight.
Again Lis van den Akker takes the honours singing on the main song creating an ERASURE-esque vibe. Light weight sequences and gentle yet driving melodies over an effortlessly rippling bass line will leave no lover of the pure synth-pop untouched.
Next to a reworked version of the album track “Modulation”, almost acting as another ‘A side’ track, there are two exclusive titles, one being ‘FM/AM’ and the brand new track “The Boys Of Wireless”, inspired by the 1912 book by Frank Webster. Still following the concept of crystal and wireless radio, there are two new extended versions, one of ‘Distant Voices’ and ‘Modulation’ topping it all off with a hard hitting club mix by Belgian artist ‘Sequence 5’.
There is no better way to truly end 808 DOT POP’s broadcastings, and to start aching for a nice hot summer, than with this fizzing pop song “Distant Voices”.
This is 808 POP radio!
