New OMD is pretty good....a bit of a throwback to some really early stuff. They are a favorite band of mine and I think their prior album was better than this one....bu this one is still good!

I love this version of the Star Pilots' song. Becker sang on the original version too. Very 80's sounding.

I diggit!

Another single from the new album 'Peach Club'  due tomorrow 09.02.

I love this one too.

I must say that this is quite a departure from their previous sound which is far more standard modern rock.

love this new direction though

Love 'em both. These guys used to be a post-hardcore band (screamo type stuff for when that term was a thing) and I lost interest in them a long time ago. I'm going to check out their last album too based on this. Obviously this is a big change in direction, but I wonder how long ago they dropped the screams...? 

Can't wait to hear this new album for sure.

the last 2 albums aren't screamy but didn't interest me.

Fantastic song, but as for the best song of 2019 that has to go to The Night Hour - Be Alright

Emarosa doesn't sound like synthpop to me.... sounds like a  pop/rock song.

love the mix of synthpop with club and electro/freestyle in these tracks... angsty and dark, but yet so danceable :)

Cause & Effect - Another Minute (1991)

 

Celebrate the Nun - Unattainable Love (1989)

 

Information Society - Running (1988)

Haven't seen them posted here on the forum, but Spotify has a couple of excellent Synth playlists:

This one has 880 songs, 59 hours long.

This one has 491 songs, almost 30 hours long:

 

402 songs, almost 30 hours:

 

And if you like synth/retro, Carpenter Brut may be up your alley:

"Nostalgic synthwave":
