There’s a new band I found that emulates the early/mid-’80s sound so well that they’re fun to listen to just to admire their mimicry. They’re called Stefy, and you can find them online (here and here) and on the iTunes Store, where their album is only $6.99.
The album’s pretty good. Not great, but good. Love You to Death sounds just like late Pat Benatar, Hey School Boy sounds like Missing Persons, Chelsea sounds like…well, I was stumped trying to come up with a comparison–Gwen Stefani fronting the Cars?–but my friend Tracey pointed out that it sounds like Berlin, and indeed it does.
