NOIA - Try And See 12"

2010 had been a fruitful year for Noisebox music-wise, uncharted bands getting discovered, some old, some new but overall its all good. What a better way to start a new year than with a good music, this time from a genre that was never introduced in my blog - eurobeat that is. A genre disgrace for many purist, guilty pleasure for synthpopers and considered low class for elitist. While many have categorized this as a eurobeat or italo music because it was sang by an italian artist, I would consider this a crossover between new wave and synth-dance/pop music or simply synthwave. Reason being it still possess the quality of synthpop/newwave we grew to love for years, low octave vocals and not too sell out melody. This particular song by the way had been a hit for some period of time in the Philippines. Italo lovers like DJ T for sure would find this familiar to his ears. So enjoy listening while I lie down on my waterbed, or bed on water would be more appropriate as we're still recovering from weeks ago rainstorm.
