#FastSong 135: New Life by Depeche Mode. Happy New Year fellow horses !
It’s really hard to overstate how cool and new this was when it came out. Beautiful, clean, and uncomplicated… Like the radio just opened a window and let the sunlight and fresh air in. Especially remarkable how, given how new electronic music was, DM had already mastered the genre. I can’t find a single thing about the hooks, the synth sounds, or arrangement of New Life that isn’t absolutely perfect or infectious. Way to go dudes.
Great theme for the New Year isn’t it ? And this is my year! So special shout out to all the horses out there, and wishing a new life and renewal to all.
