I've recently been obsessed with Hotline Miami and the movie Drive. What are some 80s synth-pop records that are similar to the sounds of these things?

thanks man, good to be here

The thing is that most 80s synthpop actually does NOT sound like Kavinsky etc. at all. It's nowhere near as heavy and dark sounding and lacks many production techniques these new artists use.

The things that come the closest are actually soundtracks, so start digging through those b action movies of the era and hope you find something that pleases you. Dance and pop music in the 80s was much lighter in atmosphere, so you're bound to be disappointed if you expect it to sound anything like Kavinsky. The gothic synth pop bands obviously have a darker sound but they don't sound as "cool" as the 2000s artists.

The whole 80s synth revival thing is about being nostalgic towards a musical style that never really happened. Which isn't a bad thing, but it's really misleading.

no seriously

please don't

Pretty much this thread ina nutshell.
>>
if you want actual 80s synthpop, look up Gary Numan, Soft Cell, John Foxx, The Human League, Depeche Mode, Fad Gadget, Snowy Red, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Yazoo and Heaven 17

I like you, op, I like this genre too. Check this

>The thing is that most 80s synthpop actually does NOT sound like Kavinsky

That's because he's not synth-pop you idiot

Kavinsky borrows more form rock music than pop. He's influenced by 80s synth guys like Kano. He also has elements of horror music (John Carpenter in particular) in his stuff.

There is nothing "pop" about Kavinsky.

>>55469418

Check out Perturbator.

>>55469635
I know that, I was just making it clear to OP because he (and all the other people who make this thread at least once a day) doesn't know the distinction. No need to be so aggressive.
>>
>>55469646
Perturbator doesn't have anything to do with the 80s.
>>
>>55469673

Doesn't matter though.
>>
>>55469690
It does, if OP wants to hear music from the 80s.

Gross. Kavinsky is fucking trash. His Nightcall EP is the only thing worth listening through. Outrun was just bad track after bad track.
