Name This Mixtape

Anne is the name of a new shoegaze synth band from Portland, Oregon. They have been together for a very short period of time, yet from the strength of this mixtape they will be a force to be reckoned with. Whilst opener 'Get It How You Live' shows a deliciously darker edge, the other three tracks offer an 80s synth dance wash over an MOR stance that is set very much in the past, yet somehow comes across as a very strong and fresh approach to a very popular genre retread, similar to what bands like Ringo Deathstarr are achieving. Anne will be working on new material in the near future, and if this is their calling card, I imagine some great things.
