Summer Vapour is an indie pop band formed in Beijing, China. Building their style around dreampop, surf rock, and shoegaze music, their sound has the breezy and sweet feel of a summer wind.
Their new synth-pop single, “Interstellar Fantasy”, gets its U.S. premiere here today. The track draws heavy influence from the music of the ’80s with nostalgia-filled synth grooves, a gated snare, and a whispery vocal performance on the verses.
The chorus sweeps out with a Motorik pace and a reflective, but airy male falsetto. The melody of the song undoubtedly has ’80s bands the Pet Shop Boys, a-ha, and Erasure as inspirations, while the synths are straight out of the beloved Disney movie Tron.
“Interstellar Fantasy” has the rare, but self-evident quality of having the potential to be even better live. Represented overseas by Neo Soul Entertainment, an entertainment management company with a focus on Asian talent, Summer Vapour is growing into one of the most interesting bands out of the East.
