Electro-pop duo The Overlookers, comprising XY from Foretaste and JB from Dekad, are back after a four-year hiatus since the release of their debut album, “Teenage Wet Dreams”. Having previously explored the world of 1950s America with Elvis Presley and colourful Cadillacs, the band has decided to jump three decades into the future for their latest project.

Their forthcoming album, titled “Videodrama”, delves into the world of 1980s nostalgia, embracing VHS technology and the era’s distinctive analog synth chords. However, despite the overtly retro-inspired sounds, The Overlookers are keen to remind fans that the Devil is always in the details.

To give you a taste of what’s to come, the band has released their first – excellent – digital single, “Undercover”, from the new album, accompanied by a music video. Fans can pre-order the limited edition 12″ vinyl LP or CD album now via the BOREDOMproduct webshop.

Check out the interview we have with The Overlookers a while back to get an idea what the project is all about.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
