I’ve always appreciated Tesla Boy for taking their dark disco & new wave influences from decades past and modernizing them into a sound they’ve been able to call their own. They’ve taken an 80s-style approach to their sound and updated it with an edge that new wave & synth pop from that era was sorely missing. Their latest track “M.C.H.T.E.” harks back to early INXS (particularly “Original Sin”) with the addition of that definitive Tesla Boy bounce. That added punch alongside some big percussion & always-stylish vocals on “M.C.H.T.E.” should be plenty to get Tesla Boy’s faithful fans fired up & ready for their forthcoming new album. Time to get excited!
Tesla Boy’s new album “The Universe Made Of Darkness” is out worldwide on May 21st.
