Keeping it in 1984 and the second offering from the Detroit synth pop band, Figures On The Beach and their first hit. Sequencers and electronic drums abound (the “Beats” track is great for an air drumming session!) on this Don Was produced track and once again it’s mixed by Ivan Ivan. I like it because the American synth sounds were slightly different to the UK synths at the time, different equipment I suppose. Also I like that it reminds me a bit like Ultravox’s “Thin Wall” in places but it is pure synth pop.
