You would be easily forgiven to thinking this came out of a mid-80’s action movie… and you’d be close. This is from soundtrack of the movie Turbo Kid, which as best I can tell is a loving homage/pastiche of 80’s B-movies. I haven’t seen that movie, but this soundtrack has bumped it up a few notches on my to-watch list.
‘Wasteland’ is very loving rooted in the synths and artifice of 80’s soundtracks – and I LOVE that sound. It’s all electric drums, bwomping bass and arpeggios. This is very much in the mould of Kavinsky and I approve soooooo much.
