Just last week, I wrote a piece about Hollywood Burns and their upcoming album Invaders. Today, the retro-infused synthwave artist has released the first track from that album and, readers, it’s a fucking banger. Dubbed “Scherzo No. 5 in Death Minor”, the song starts with an homage to Bernard Herrmann’s Psycho overlain with theremin “Oooohs” that sound like they belong in a 50’s sci-fi invasion film. From there, the track slams into a 70’s disco/funk/electronic groove that had me tapping my feet and nodding my head.
To put it into perspective, I’m listening to the track while I type this out and I’m actually typing in rhythm to the song. I’m sure it looks absolutely ridiculous but I could not care less. I’m rocking out and loving every second of this!
Invaders will come out April 13 via Blood Music.
