Electric Eyes

AHE-17 VIRGINIA PLAIN - Electric Eyes b/w Swamp Thing - 7": $5
The Electric Eyes single is the debut recording from the "tech-noir" group, Virginia Plain, fronted by Alfra Martini with support from Fono Luxe members: Justin Miller, Christian Reinhardsen and Robert Boston. The A side, "Electric Eyes", is a classic song sharing musical ties with synth pop pioneers OMD and the 50's crooner vocal stylings of Bryan Ferry.  The song kicks off with Martini's voice gliding over bumping synth bass and 808 drum claps bringing to mind the melancholic pop sound of classic '80's hits like Q Lazzurus' "Goodbye Horses".  Side B’s "Swamp Thing" is the shadowy twin to the bright faced "Electric Eyes".  With it's relentless Sisters of Mercy style beat and minor key synth lines the atmosphere turns from dreamy to sinister.
