Ansible: An 80’s Inspired Revival of the X Generation

“Plaster of Paris” has that hip dance club rhythm and “poppish” sound of the brit love beats that the 80’s were driven by, and lyrics that came to rive many into luxurious soul spinning excitement. just playin it slow is not enough, it has to be live and loud.

Ansible is an 80’s pop pastiche from musicians Josiah Hall and Cody Smith. Operating out of Houston and Nashville respectively, the pair draw from a wealth of that decade’s airwave hits, hewing pitch perfect pop tunes out of neon purple synths and gated reverb rhythm sections.

Children of the ages themselves, Hall and Smith set out to recreate the magic of a sound they’d only come to appreciate later in life, holding up Collins-era Genesis and Tears for Fears as sources of inspiration. Influences can only take a song so far though, and the minds behind Ansible do more than copycat their muses. They match their stylistic touchstones with immediate hooks and clever arrangements, resulting in songs to soundtrack the lovelorn nights of any decade. So, don your moon boots, roll up those blazer sleeves, and Wang Chung to the nu-80s pop of Ansible.

In The News: Houston’s Ansible have a very exciting few months ahead of them.

Ansible plan on releasing a highly anticipated LP early next year. The first single off the long-awaited project is “Plaster of Paris”. The release showcases the group’s avant-garde sound. Produced by a brilliant blend of synth melodies, pounding percussion, and a commanding guitar component; add their unprocessed lyricism and you have one incredibly memorable release.

Using the track to communicate a wounded relationship beyond repair, the two vividly depict the frustration of being trapped on a merry-go-round. Feeling exhausted by the lack of change and becoming honest about stepping away.

Get in on the action and get some of the sweet stuff!
