Leena Punks channels synth pop & unwitting 80s nostalgia on retro-futuristic pop single, ‘Synthall’
London based DJ/producer Leena Punks has just pulled deep into an unwitting sense of nostalgia for her vibrant and euphoric new release, titled “Synthall.” Inspired by the heavy textural synths of the 80s and dry drum machines, “Synthall” is a cross between synth-pop and underground electronica. Speaking of her new single, Leena Punks says
“This ‘retro-futuristic’ pop feel was a departure from my usual indie-house sound but again I wanted to experiment with an unapologetically optimistic record that brings us full term to a post-lockdown era full of hope, hugs and a return to raving again!”– Leena Punks
“Synthall” is the first single to come from the upcoming Here Tonight EP, which is expected to land later this year. The single release is completed with a video release, highlighting the warm retro tones of this massive single.
