UK synthpop band Magnetic Skies has a new song out called “Outside” that is lush and dreamy synthpop. The track is about wanting to escape the sorrow and violence of the real world.
“Outside” will appear on their forthcoming debut album, “Empire Falling,” which should be out in the fall. The album will explore dark themes, both musically and lyrically. Meanwhile, Magnetic Skies will be performing a number of live shows in the UK, supporting acts like Heaven 17, Altered Images, and ACTORS.
They’ve released several singles and a trilogy of EPs since their formation in 2018. Their most recent single is last year’s “Not a Fire.”
Magnetic Skies consists of Simon Kent (vocals), Jo Womar (keyboards), Carlos Aguilar (guitars), and Lenin Alegria (drums). They makes ’80s fueled synthpop and darkwave inspired by some of the genre’s most defining artists, including Depeche Mode, Tears for Fears, and Japan.
