This week’s track is by Kristine with the song Modern Love taken from her newly release EP of the same name.
I love the 80s sound she has, both in terms of her amazing vocals (straight out of the era - reminiscent of singers such as Stevie Nicks and Cyndi Lauper) and the catchy synth production that captures the nostalgic sense of optimistic joy that a lot of the music of that decade had.
In truth, the whole EP is awesome. The original version of Modern Love (presented here with a fan-made 80s bikini contest video) is a joy, as well as the Top Gun featuring video that accompanies The Danger.
Great remixes of these tracks from Barretso and Mitch Murder are also on Kristine’s EP, but if I had to pick one for my track of the week it would be Power Glove’s remix of Modern Love which you can listen to below.Kristine - Modern Love (remix) by powerglove
I’ve been a big fan of Power Glove ever since hearing their work in the film Hobo with a Shotgun, and this remix is just spine-tinglingly awesome. It transforms Kristine’s regular upbeat sound into something dark and brooding, the synth heavy moodiness perfectly accompanies her vocals, making them sound even sultrier than they already are.
You can hear more of Power Glove’s music HERE.
Kristine doesn't appear to have a website at the moment but you can listen to more of her stuff HERE. She has collaborated with a lot of artists looking to recreate 80s sounds – aone such highlight being a collaboration with MPM Soundtracks on a track called A Night Like Tonight, accompanied here by a charming Back to The Future video.
