Blending an 80s synth sound and layered guitar and keys Kristan North will pull you into a period of hope and technology. Creating music with influences from 70s soul and psychedelic genres.
Kristian North (Montreal, CA) has arrived at the jarring, hi-fi perimeter of 80s excess. The former Babysitter frontman’s second album, Passion Play, is the terminus for a career exhausted by the fringes of garage punk. Trading his road-worn guitar for digital synths and analog drum machines, North’s solo efforts have been anchored by his acerbic, yet heartfelt lyrics, his songs playing like short stories with their quaint confessions, cloaked desires, and mythical references.
His new track Passion play can be heard on Soundcloud and the same titled video is now on YouTube.
