Callum Crighton’s music is all about celebrating freedom and individualty, especially from the perspective of someone in the LGBTQ+ community. His debut EP, Lazer Police: The Musical, is no exception to Crighton’s inclusive vision, something you can learn a little more about in the quote below.
Having grown up listening to 80s legends such as Duran Duran, Kate Bush, Human League and Madonna, the retro vibes are simply oozing out of this EP. From the heavy-handed synths, to punchy pop rhythm, to the neon-soaked artwork. Even the overarching theme of “lazer police” is pure 80s film nostalgia.
From the four-track EP, our favourite listen is ‘Universal Hand’, which has a little bit of Future Islands meets Flaming Lips sense to it. Like a New Romantics artist performing on Top of the Pops from space. Just listen and you’ll get it!
