WHAT happens when a bunch of '80s babies combine their shared love of MTV’s heyday, video games, synths, their parents’ Parliament records, and Saturday morning cartoons? A fresh kind of new wave that’s as infectious as it is memorable: Greenville, South Carolina’s Stereo Reform.
Funky and dancey, their latest album, The Future Started Yesterday, was produced by Grammy-nominated Bravo Ocean Music Group in Atlanta. Songs like “Hold Your Lover” meld Top 40 anthem stylings with the grit and nasty low end of modern electro groups like Ghostland Observatory and the spirit of early funk. It won’t take long before you catch on to the words and start singing along.
