Bringing classy British new wave into modern synthrock

Formed in Mexico City, Rey Pila is a quartet that rekindles the classy spirit of British new wave by molding it with their own synthrock flair. Their latest EP, Wall Of Goth, feels like an anachronistic odyssey – it transports half of your brain to old Depeche Mode era but at the same time throws the other half to futuristic synthwave. In the opener “How Do You Know?” we get a kick of 80s disco air that has been mixed with modern pop. The following track “Ninjas” exudes a darker tone, with smoky choruses and anthemic rhythmic buildup. And just when you thought you were going up to space, Rey Pila grounds you back with its sun-kissed track “Sunday Games.” The quartet wraps the EP with a rather introspective track, “No Man’s Land,” where they take us into synth-laden fluid of thoughts. Enjoy the EP below:
