Baeble First Play: Jason Sager's Sound Is A Ray Of 'Sunshine'
  • WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2015

The New Romantics don't get enough credit. Just when people were getting tired of the icy distance of New Wave, bands like Spandau Ballet and Tears for Fears arrived to impart some genuine emotionality and warmth into the genre. And in today's synthpop revival -- where we've reached peak genre saturation of bands just playing electronic beats over some basic and potentially pretty melodies -- we need a little romanticism. And New York songwriter Jason Sager combines the best of the electronic warmth and drama of the New Romantics with contemporary pop sensibilities.

We're happy to be premiering Jason's new track, "Sunshine." It pairs some much needed summer synths -- do you realize how cold it's been this last week -- with a Maroon 5-esque falsetto and hooks to spare. His debut EP, Panoramic View, is due out 11/13, and if "Sunshine" is any indication, we're going to be devouring that record when it drops.
