A year ago a mysterious young man going by the name of Starcadian
posted a surprisingly masterfully composed music video
shot for $200 with half of a discarded movie prop cockpit. Other than a few songs on soundcloud
, notably Girls Of Midnight
which got some moderate blog attention a couple years ago, he hadn't really been on anyone's radar...
A month ago, he broke what had been close to radio silence and posted a trailer
for an upcoming release. It's fairly mysterious, and makes it a bit ambiguous what exactly is coming. Short film? Long music video in this vein
On October 31st he updated his bandcamp revealing what he had been working on, The full length "Soundtrack" Sunset blood
. It's a fairly expansive album covering a wide range of styles from laid back modern electro pop, to mingling with stuff more like Air, to chromeo-like 80s inspired pop and beyond. Lush synthesizers abound, and lots of vocoding and talkboxing.
There's also a recent Interview
, and a Reddit thread
in which he answers quite a few questions about the video and his music in general.
