Here’s a DIY retro powerpop band I don’t mind giving space on my site to. Human Human. It feels more retro than The Killers, and less pop. It feels more pop than Gary Numan, and less retro. The vocals are remarkably like Bono, only without the bombast and with extra soar. In short, you’ve heard many of the sounds here before, but probably mixed together in this particular way. I loved it–listened to it over and over.
The 1980s channel is practically where I live when I listen to Sirius, so this fits nicely in that groove in my heart.
