Popsneon – Some Town (LP)

We recently hosted the track “This Town Forever” by Popsneon and he has now released his album “Some Town” on Paper Wave!

Its a 10 track release and it features guest vocals from Huw Costin and Tiger throughout and the album follows a similar vibe as the first single!

Gorgeous synth sounds with uplifting vocals make this album perfect for summertime opening track “I Feel L.A” features both vocalists and is very reminiscent of New Order.

“Exam Stress” is quite a very experimental sounding banger just to throw a curveball into the mix!

“Highway Ballads” is another potential single very powerful vocal lines with hypnotic appregiated synths in the background.

The album is released on 29th April.

Press release:

The sounds of Paper Recordings’ latest label offshoot Paper Wave are perfectly captured in the first full album release from Popsneon, a diverse new house, pop, synth and disco project by one of Neon Heights’ founding members, Simon White.

White has been out of the DJ and production game for 15 years but was a key player in the Nottingham scene before that as a resident at cult clubs The Bomb and the famous Carwash party, and as the owner of The Loft Bar. He’s more recently become a fixture on the live music side of things but dealing with bands and their kit not playing music himself, and he also does live sound for BBC’s Question Time.

The past year has seen White finding time to get his music-making gear out from under the bed and ‘Some Town’ is the stunning result. The LP title is derived from the fact that all the musicians, singers, graphic and video artists involved in the album are locals, more specifically they can all be found in the catchment area for Haydn Primary school in Nottingham! Says the artist, ​”It is truly amazing how many artists can be found on ya street or just round the corner.”

Some Town is a debut long-player that is a feast for the ears across 10 tracks infused with 15 years of experiences and influences as diverse as Detroit, Balearic, house, outsider pop, shoegaze and Parisian synth disco. It is entwined with vocals from Torn Sail’s Huw Costin and Tiger to create an original and standalone long-player that suits sets at sundown paradise destinations across the globe.
