Silky smooth muddy sounds. -- this is Fashion Notes.
Created between March 2020 and September 2020, Fashion Notes aims to recreate the bedroom pop of the 90s, attempting to emulate more sharp and imperfect sound design while still maintaining that solid synthpop structure, with a more experimental seasoning. Songs like 'Maniac' and 'Hello' stay in touch with the pop tones of today, while introducing lesser-known concepts and darker theming throughout. Other songs like 'Walk the Line' and 'Space Race' aim to please more pop-enthused-people with bright melodies, driving basslines, and straightforward lyricism. Fashion Notes is one for the history books of synthpop, whether it's on page XIV as an honorable mention or on Page 1250 as a new chapter,
