85 REWIND – Magic Hour (2022)

85 REWIND is a brand new synthwave / rock band from Germany, which style is a bodacious mix of electric guitar driven rock with synths / keyboards plenty of catchy melodies / harmonic vocals with powerful meanings that will take you back to the time of your childhood heroes.
Their debut album is titled “Magic Hour“, and since the cover artwork you know the ’80s culture is all over this band’s style. It’s a poster replicating Eighties movies / series promo banners, even it says ‘Season One’. And indeed the album works like a TV series full season as the songs tell a story as a whole.
“Magic Hour” is not just an album, this is a season with a storyline that will take you on an emotional rollercoaster ride. The year is 1985 – when Miami Vice was on TV, Back to the Future opened in cinemas and the Nintendo Entertainment System was launched, all great memories from our past, while the music from then still sounds like the future, somehow.
Musically, 85 REWIND isn’t just synthwave, this is a real rock band with electric guitar, real drums, and vocals on all songs. Watch the video below…
