Electronic pop musician DΛVIS Mallory has released his latest album titled Back to the 80s, a collection of songs inspired by his love for the decade that brought us New Age, Synth Pop, and Hair Bands. On his album, DΛVIS takes us on a sonic journey through the decade as we reminisce the sounds that made the 80’s so iconic.
The album begins with the title track and continues with the upbeat, bass-heavy “Jane Fonda” an ode to the actress from the same hometown as DΛVIS (Atlanta).
Back to the 80s was written over a span of 5 years with tracks recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, Malmo & Stockholm, Sweden, Los Angeles, and Berlin, Germany as DΛVIS fine-tuned his sound in the Retro/Disco/Funk format.
Lead single "Sun and Moon" started off this direction, and DΛVIS credits the passing away of musical icon Prince as a key influence in DΛVIS' shift in his musical sound. Other standout tracks on the album include "Wild Child" with Dutch producer Vence - a tribute to DΛVIS’ wild cat Xena, "Cologne" which launched DΛVIS' limited edition cologne brand, "Perfect Romance" a disco ballad in the vein of Lizzo or Miley Cyrus.
The album ends with two fabulous covers: “Don't You Want Me" by Human League and a rendition of "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper with new lyrics "boys just wanna have fun."
