Track: Roller Skater | Artist: Chris Tall
Officially released today, Chris Tall's Roller Skater is everything you need to throw your Saturday back to the 80's. Melting the synth-heavy sounds of yesteryear with rolling future-pop licks, Tall manages to transport us back in time while maintaining a modern magnetism that can't be beat.
Collaborating with international vocalist Linnea Södahl, Chris Tall is bringing the 20th century back in style through his latest record Roller Skater. With the release of two additional singles under his belt (Duck Face & Time Of Your Life), the Swedish-based producer is poised to dominate 2016 with a dreamy blend of retro-nostalgia. His previous releases saw much attention from both the international and European music community; finding airtime on some of the hottest radio stations across the UK. Now having released Roller Skater, there's no telling what Chris Tall has up his sleeve to continue on the roll into summer '16.
“My ambition is to bring back the down to earth 70s/80s disco and mix it with modernity. There is so much anxiety in the world today, and we have to find our way back to complete decadence and self-awareness.”
Roller Skater soars with whimsical synth patterns and musing vocal hooks; a sound that reminisces of fellow Swedish duo Niki & The Dove. Check out the evocative music video to Roller Skater below and peep Chris Tall's socials while you're at it for more great music coming your way!
