We’re ‘Fading’ back to the 1980s on your Wednesday morning, with thanks to the smashing new single from Melbourne producer Retro Culture.
It’s a totally tasty slice of pop that feels like it may have been plucked straight from the middle of the decade that was, what with its live instruments, analogue production and feel good vibe.
And, according to Retro Culture (aka Matt), we have the hit Netflix TV series ‘Stranger Things’ to thank for it.
“The demo version of ‘Fading’ was actually written a little over a year ago,” Matt explains. “I think at the time I had hit a wall with the song and decided to move on. But then a few months ago I rediscovered the track and it was around the same time as I was watching ‘Stranger Things’.
“Subconsciously whatever I’m watching or listening to at the time of writing always seeps into the track. I was loving the soundtrack to that show and it gave me this second wind of inspiration to finish the single.”
