Step into the time machine, because 1986 is back with a vengeance! It was a year of contrasts, blending wonder and madness like a swirling cocktail of history. From the heights of Magic Johnson’s basketball wizardry to the adrenaline-fueled skies of Top Gun, and from high kicks sneakers to the thundering release of Metallica’s ‘Master of Puppets,’ it was a year that left an indelible mark on culture.

But amidst the dazzle, darkness loomed. The Chernobyl disaster cast a long shadow of nuclear dread, while the tragic loss of the Challenger crew stunned the world. And as if ripped from a spy thriller, the assassination of the Swedish prime minister shook the very foundations of stability, all against the backdrop of the icy tensions of the Cold War.

And now, in a sonic odyssey that echoes the spirit of ’86, enter 802. Born from the unlikely collision of Andreas Asingh’s electronic pedigree and the raw energy of Emil Sørensen and Kristian Holbæk from the underground metal scene, 802 is a musical chimera like no other.

With their latest single, ‘1986,’ 802 invites us to dive headfirst into a swirling vortex of sound. Imagine classic heavy metal crashing into the ethereal haze of shoegaze, all underpinned by ghostly synth pop and irresistibly catchy melodies. It’s musical alchemy, a rebellion against conformity, and a celebration of the unexpected.

So buckle up, because 1986 is back, and this time, the soundtrack is pure, unadulterated chaos. Welcome to the world of 802, where headbangers and pop lovers alike find common ground in a symphony of noise and rebellion.
