Operating in a shamelessly catchy 1980s pop universe, George Clanton writes pop songs that would normally come off as well-constructed kitsch, but he saves himself by delivering them with a straight face and honest intentions. That conviction goes a long way and elevates the project from being merely reminiscent of yesteryear to something very much of the now. Plus, he steps up where a lot of modern synth-pop projects tend to slack off these days: the vocals. Looking to lion-throated titans of the 80s like Tears for Fears, Duran Duran, and even David Bowie, George fully commits his big personality to his even bigger choruses and churns out earworm after wriggling earworm. It’s the kind of music that prods you to sing along even if you don’t know the words—just follow George’s bold lead. -Portals
