Men without Hats
Every new wave/synthpop fan has heard of Pop Goes the World and The Safety Dance. The baritone voice of this band’s lead singer still echoes in every new wave/synthpop fan’s mind. The voice is none other than that of Ivan Doroschuk’s and the band is of course Men without Hats. Hailing from Montreal, Quebec, Men without Hats now consists of Sho Murray, Rachel Ashmore and Lou Dawson, in addition to Doroschuk. The band has released 7 studio albums with Rhythm of Youth being their debut album, released in 1982. Love in the Age of War has been their last album (it was released in 2012). In addition to Pop Goes the World and The Safety Dance Men without Hats is also known for some other chartbusting songs such as Ideas for Walls, Devil Come Round, Jenny Wore Black, I Like and many others. While the band hasn’t released anything new lately, the best way to listen to their new music is by being where they are performing live.
An English new wave and post-punk band from Essex, Modern English shot to fame with singles Ink and Paper, Hands Across the Sea and I Melt with You. The band has released 8 studio albums, out of which their sophomore album After the Snow was certified Gold in the US by the RIAA. The band’s latest album Take Me to the Trees was released in 2016. While this album failed to chart, it however was welcomed by Modern English fans since it had been released after a hiatus of 6 long years. If you’re a fan of this band, then be at this year’s Retro Futura Tour.
