    Falling is the definitive Haim song for me. Can listen to that any number of times.

    Jessie Ware touchstone there is obvs Cyndi Lauper.

    If I Could Change Your Mind is amazing - reminds me really strongly of a couple of 80s tunes I can't quite put my finger on. (Not Tango in the Night in this particular case.)

    This is kind of related to my Laura Groves thread.

    Luka is basically Drake to my Skepta at this point.

    Lol I'm actually going to claim I laid the groundwork with the rinse pop thread which concerned '90s pastiche whereas this is about '80s pastiche

    shura.

    make it up sounds like haim doing some sort of song youd hear during a montage in an 80s rom com about a girl in the big city.

    everything of hers ive heard sounds like stuff my uncle would listen to in 1985.

    abra is also basically just renovating NY 1980s club classics

    i love all this stuff and want to hear it playing at visage in gants hill

    Yeah, I felt like Especia fell off after "Midnight Confusion" but that Wonder Girls tune is def. a good one.

    Nobody's mentioned The 1975 yet, and those guys REALLY nailed pastiche pop in the last few years.

    haim are one of those things where i fall in love with the artists, like daydream about being famous and meeting one of them at a party and stuff and then we start kissing and stuff, regardless of their appearance and how long their legs are, just the yearning quality embodied in the songs, i get a teenage mooning feeling, i love that feeling its so nostaligic.

    theres a brash quality to the especia vocal that i think really nails something about a certain brand of female 80s pop.

    what we're talking about here, and what reynolds is talking about in retromania, is really classic postmodernism, that postmodernism is still working itself out, and only now is finding its peak, more ubiquitous than ever.
