‘Night Riders‘ by Fashion Invasion, Last Day Deaf‘s exclusive track premiere, is a perfectly balanced synth pop gem. John Paul Byram on guest vocals is undertaking that dificult task to unleash pathos with his expressive performance, while at the same time never overshadowing the gentle synth leads and lush melody line.
Yup, this is a 4-minute tune that is glowing with quality and proves to be a rousing showcase of the band’s craftmanship, and furthermore one step further from their biggest influences, Depeche Mode, New Order & Kraftwerk. Utterly mesmerizing, and out-of-orbit…
“We ride into the sky tonight”
What would happen if the members of Depeche Mode and New Order met up in a nightclub in Los Angeles while listening to Kraftwerk?
This is where a band like Fashion Invasion come in. The songwriting-arranging craftsmanship of Depeche Mode, the dance grooves of New Order, and a Kraftwerk-style electronic pulse are thrown into the mix to create an exhilarating experience for the body, mind and soul. Fashion Invasion’s production and arrangements feature hard-hitting drums thrown in an 80’s style reverb chamber that transports the listener back in time. Along with thumping bass lines, cutting-edge synth leads and dramatic vocals; the lean yet intricate arrangements of the band’s songs give the audience a taste of their sonic signature.
Fashion Invasion will be officially releasing their newest single, entitled Night Riders (feat. John Paul Byram), on December 1, 2019. The single will be available on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and many other leading online music retailers. The band is currently working on their debut album which will be released next fall.
