I have known James for a few years now, having met him online back in the days of using Reason (which he still uses from time to time, at least as far as I know, and I’ve since completely ditched). He was also one of the factors in me ending up with Studio One as my DAW, so when he asked me if I wanted to write a review of their EP “Come Back Home” I said yes (surprise!).
Stereospread is Sara Snyder and James Hopkins, and I guess the most common genre for their music is synthpop. The songs on their SoundCloud page has a few tags attached to them, like “dreampop”, “electropop” and my personal favorite (which I’m pretty sure must be made up); “shoegaze”. 😛
My main reason for liking music in this genre is that it reminds me of the 80’s, which we all know had awesome music (admittedly I think it might help being a child of the 80’s). But let’s get on with it the actual review, instead of getting lost in the wonderful world of 80’s music. 🙂
Actually before we begin I should probably tell you that the EP is free to download (with the option to pay what you want), so getting your hands on it is really rather easy. Just head on over to their Bandcamp page and you’re merely a few clicks away from having the EP.
