Straight out of new wave nostalgia we have Manics, a duo from San Francisco mixing indie pop vocals with melodic dance music. Don’t let the cover art fool you into thinking this is album yearns for simpler times– a lamentation of days gone by. Oh no, the analog synthesizer and hooks on Binary EP connects the past 3 decades in a way that is wonderfully “now”. Thank you, Manics.
