new com truise track 'cathode girls'

New Jersey producer and synthpop nostalgist Com Truise is preparing to release his debut album, Galactic Melt, this summer on Ghostly.

Yesterday, he released a teaser EP, Fairlight, and today he leaked album track “Cathode Girls.” The latter is like four songs in one, with a couple of breaks, some New Order bass and plenty of amped up chillwave keyboard sounds:

As for the EP, the title track is much more focused on the 80’s aesthetic — and the accompanying video is an amusing time capsule of cassette tapes, VCRs and PCs in original Tron style:

The EP’s other two tracks show some variety in Com Truise’s approach. The more downtempo “Polyhurt” features a bass sound that splits the difference between New Order and The Cure:

“Beta Eyes” is a more glitchy, frenetic piece with a somewhat 8-bit vibe:
