Stumbling through music online as I normally do, I come across an artist by the name of Room8. You may not know who this is yet, but my guess is we will be hearing more from the duo in the future, a lot more. Combining pop and 80s influences with a great splash of synth and melodic vocals as well as giving the saxophone a much needed spotlight, Room8 has it all. Gearing up for the release of their debut album Transduction, Room8 is one to keep on your radar.
"Room8 "Transduction" is a crossroads on the electronic highway. An audio film that takes place in a musical past, present, and future. The brain child of Ezra Reich and Nic Johns, "Transduction" features Electric Youth (from the neon noir hit "Drive"), Martha Davis (leader of classic New Wave icons, The Motels), the sax work of Ian Young from M83, guitar work from Giorgio Moroder arranger and guitar player and famed producer, Richie Zito, mixed with Gavin Mackillop (Human League, General Public, Heaven 17) and Mastered at Little Red Book in LA. With artwork by the legendary art collective, The Zonders. Step into the world of Room8's Transduction."
