Scandroid, the modern Synthwave project from Detroit based artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Celldweller/Circle of Dust, is Klayton’s love letter to the 80s. The music video for ‘Eden’ can be watched below.
The debut, self-titled Scandroid album is released on Nov. 10th. and features 15 tracks, ranging from the driving instrumental energy of ‘Destination Unknown,’ to melodic vocal tracks like ‘Awakening With You,’ ‘Aphelion,’ and ‘Neo-Tokyo,’ rounded out with the cinematic epics ‘2517’ & ‘Singularity.’ As a child of the 80’s, Klayton has also included a cover of the classic Tears For Fears song ‘Shout,’ that he has been patiently waiting to cover since he first heard the song on U.S. radio in 1985. The digital album concludes with a bonus remix from synthwave artist Waveshaper. The 72 minute album depicts themes of a cyberpunk future where humans and sentient robots struggle to find a connection in their dystopian world.
