Post essential synthpop albums from the 2000's and this decade. I want to know more about this beautiful genre
>inb4 some faggot posts Chvrches
Also, this one is great
That's not synthpop, that's dream pop.
>Why, exactly, is synthpop?
Pop music characterized primarily by a synthesizer being the dominant instrument along with a singer, often with a drum machine.
>Does the soundtrack from Drive qualify?
Most of the songs count, specifically as "synthwave", which is a sort of synthpop revival focusing on a "retro eighties" aesthetic.
>If so, can you recommend some other albums with that kind of a feel to them?
Kavinsky - OutRun
Miami Nights 1984 - Turbulence
Lazerhawk - Visitors
Com Truise - In Decay
Never thought of this album in that light.
The majority of the tracks aren't synthpop, but Rhinestone Eyes, Empire Ants, On Melancholy Hill, and Plastic Beach could easily be argued as synthpop.
But that's a boring album and it's not even synth pop
John Maus - We Must Become the Pitiless Censors of Ourselves, however, is an incredibly fun and beautiful synth pop album and essential for anyone who likes the genre.
Fever Ray, Glasser, iamamiamwhoami, HTRK
Eurythmics - Sweet Dreams Are Made of This maybe?
really good album anyway
