Found The Light summary review
The band wastes no time hitting that special retro beat. Right away you can hear the 80's popping - this is no poser band, the lyrics are solid and won't disappoint. "Out of the darkness and into life", just a sample of the lyrics, there is no doubt they have effectively mixed their faith with their music. ØM-53's sound is unique and it's special to hear, a refreshing change. I would say this song is a musical reflection between the style of Flock of Seagulls and A-ha.
If you are looking for a new old sound that you won't hear anywhere else, then you will really enjoy ØM-53's sound, dig their faith, and right away feel the 80's. Plus, they have also promised to release a track a month.
From Scott and Cris, "we wanted to bring something new to the table".
Final word: retro-synthwave fans, prepare to be delighted.
