On a tip from a trusted friend, this new track from Operators fell into my lap. Operators is the new project from Wolf Parade’s Dan Boeckner, and is the single from their upcoming debut record, Blue Wave. “Cold Light,” is a melodic, synth driven pop number, that’s anthemic and soaring. “Cold Light,” is indebted to the 80s stuttering synth bass lines, and feels both authentically modern and like it could be pulled straight out of a John Hughes soundtrack.
Operators have also announced that they’ll head out on tour in support of Blue Wave, stopping here in the city in late April.
