Promising synth pop duo launches potential hit
The names Pete Roessler and Severine Casati may not ring a bell yet, but this is about to change. They form the synth pop duo Late Night Cable, based in Brooklyn and they are ready for the next step in their career with the release of the single ‘Hold You Back’. Both deliver vocals and they play piano, bass and synths as well. For their live shows they are joined by a drummer and a bassist. The band is currently preparing the release of an EP. No word yet on when it will come out exactly, but let’s hope it’s rather sooner than later as ‘Hold You Back’ sounds promising to say the least!
Late Nite Cable’s sound is synth pop in its purest form. There are hints of 80s, we hear some influences by bands like the Pet Shop Boys and most of all were are blown away by the sharpness of the hooks. The ‘Hold You Back’ chorus is so infectious. The melody is big and the soaring vocals and synths put extra emphasis on the catchiness of it all. The production is light and radio friendly. If we all spread the word about this track we might even hear it on radio ourselves one day soon. Let me start this by making ‘Hold You Back’ Song of the Day at A Bit of Pop Music!
