Upon hearing bands like Washed Out, Cut Copy, Crystal Castles, Neon Indian and artists of the sort sometime in late 2011, about the time Josh DeSousa admits, the genre for some of these bands was declared to be dead, he fell in love with the way the overall sound made him feel. A sound he felt was a bit nostalgic but with a modern vibe and groove. He liked the idea of taking sounds from past eras and making them relevant to today especially in the style which he hadn't heard since the Eighties and early Nineties growing up. He also loved hearing and connecting with the limitless capabilities of the synthesizer and its ability to create moods so effortlessly. After being confined to the guitar and other "live" instruments for so long singing and playing guitar in Indie and Punk bands in and around Chicago, Josh decided it was high time and went out and bought a cheap synthesizer. The result has been songs influenced by Eighties, early Nineties Synth Pop, Hip Hop and RnB with an East Edwards twist.
