RIYL: Gothic 80s Synthpop | VGM | Vaporwave
Label: 100% Electronica
Never one to do the same thing twice, Equip ushers in a new era of original vaporwave. After I Dreamed of a Palace In The Skyâs gauzy new age and last years tribute to 16 bit RPGS OSTs, Synthetic Core 88, comes a new adventure, âCURSEBREAKER Xâ.
CURSEBREAKER ZERO is a series of three singles leading up to the album, featuring self-sampling eccojams as vinyl exclusive b-sides.
The first single, âCEMETERY MOONGLOW (in the cold air of the night)â mixes the gothic synthpop stylings of 80âs 4AD with the atmosphere of a Castlevania game. Catchy SNES-era leads weave between waves of dreamy chorused out guitar wash amongst a slushy backbeat. CEMETERY MOONGLOW is only Act I- keep an eye out for Cursebreaker ZERO Acts II & III, dropping later this summer!
Stay tuned for more of the lore surrounding CURSEBREAKER X!
