Get Up, Stand Up And Fight For Your Right To Dance With Synth Pop Band JUPE JUPE

23 April 2020

Seattle’s synth-pop outfit JUPE JUPE formed in 2010. They produce a danceable, yet shadowy soundscape, with vocals crooning over pulsing beats as guitars and sax cut across panoramic washes of synth. They released a new 5-track EP called NIGHTFALL, described as “a noir cocktail with hook-laden songs about yearning that are simultaneously upbeat and melancholy.”

My favorite track is the EP’s closer LEAVE YOU LONELY. A swirling synth tune that draws your aural attention from the kick-off, a vibrant earworm driven by a sparkling melody line creating rapturous sonorousness that’ll put a big smile on your face in these surreal times. Although it’s a sorrowful love song the elevating tonality, irresistible rhythm, catching chorus and sultry sax has an instant adrenalin pumping effect à la New Order. Electronic ravishment indeed. Get up, stand up and fight for your right to dance, right here…
