Meet Me in Orbit's 'Last Time' will put you in the stratosphere

Posted on

At this point there are probably more electropop acts working than there were in the ’80s when the genre was pretty much inescapable for a good chunk of the decade. San Francisco’s Meet Me in Orbit distinguish themselves from the synth-happy crowd not only by the quality of their recordings, which is evidenced by a fastidious sonic approach that avoids plug-in presets but also by their ability to work their way inside your head and evoke a real emotional response. 

“Last Time,” from their upcoming Traveller EP (out April 7 on Sky Council Recordings), is regretful but buoyant—the band says “The idea was to create a melodic and spacious track that was just as much welcoming as it was haunting.” It works.
