Retro Synthwave from Sweden!

The world is on fire. Great nations are being run by mad men. Humanity is in a daze.

Civilization, as we know it, could be facing collapse within decades.

These and other existential fears and observations of modern life helped Swedish act

The Secret Chord give birth to their debut album 'Tranquility Base'. Now in partnership

with Aztec Records they are bringing the deluxe edition with an exclusive new single,

an acoustic rendition of "When we're dancing" and remixes by Emilio Asstevez, Friday

Night Firefight, Miami Glow, Ends 84 and Fulvio Colasanto.

These profound ideas exposed in the deceivingly simple lyrics are set to music heavily

influenced by the brilliant and playful sounds of the mid-eighties. Joakim's kaleidoscope

production in conjunction with honey-drip vocals by Ida Trosell and Johannes Kotschy

create an album of significance and relevance. The album is an homage to masterpieces

like A-ha's 'Hunting High and Low', Depeche Mode's 'Black Celebration', Erasure's

'Wonderland' and Peter Gabriel's 'So', combined with the classic movie soundtracks of

the now iconic decade.

They say still waters run deep. No better analogy for this collection of pop songs that

carry a very profound message to the listeners.
