Right out the UK
AEW proudly pay tribute to 1977, the year that spawned a revolutionary DIY attitude to music, the start of New Wave and ultimately all the experimental pop that drove the 80’s.
Without the Punk vanguard would we have had the Synth-pop and electro we love or even Hip-Hop and Grime?
According To Vinnie “Punk was about an ‘anything goes attitude and a “we can do this approach”, a philosophy that resonates with us and our music”.
The accompanying video enhances the retro feel with rare grainy clips from early Punk gigs and focuses on the reality of punk in northern Britain. On this track we have further developed our style and influences and we look forward to releasing more new material in 2018. Our driver is to produce warm, fun and unique music that draws on synth-pop history and nostalgic themes.
Previous releases generated considerable critical acclaim and substantial national and international interest from the electronic music community. With plays on BBC introducing, BBC radio 6 and a host of other Internet and specialist radio shows including the acclaimed Rusty Egan Show. – Electronic Family Tree. Word is starting to spread as AEW look to generating wider audiences in 2018.

This track is inspired the gritty reality of late 70’s Punk and New Wave and the early experimental work of the Human League and synth pioneers, Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft(DAF).
We hope we have captured some of that same DIY spirit, energy and sounds by using some vintage gear including Korg Rhythm 55 drum machine, MS10 and a Tascam 4 track cassette recorder. We also used the Korg MS2000, Arturia Minibrute and Triton.
