The Ruby Suns – Christopher (2013)
The Ruby Suns are nominally an indie-pop band from New Zealand and this is their fourth album.
To me, it sounds like an 80s electropop revival rather than indie-pop. The music is really retro, but all brought together with a modern club sound; it reminds me of all sorts of stuff from the 80s, such as Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Tears For Fears, etc. But the club sound is just too much for me.
There is some really interesting music behind the main direction, but I just can’t get past the cliched club sound and I just don’t like it, at all.
