New track from NOTNO brings the 80s back for a new wave sendoff.
It’s surprising that, while 80s inspired music seems to be the flavour of the year, new wave is a genre that seldom gets the contemporary treatment. Lucky for 80s fans, NOTNO is keen to give the genre a 21st century facelift with BODY, the artist’s latest single and collab with Freda James.
As it blends new wave percussion with airy melodies and hazy synth-pop stylings, Freda James contributes intoxicating vocals for a harmonic duet that brings back inebriated visions of an 80s memory you’re not quite sure happened. The track offers a step beyond the typical synthpop comeback most artists run with and creates something memorable and magical instead.
