The British funk masters Jamiroquai have released their fist music video in 7 years, and it’s a full on retrowave funk fest!
“Automaton” is the fist single from their upcoming album of the same name. This track features some outstanding synth work, which is expertly marries the polar opposite sounds of unsettling and groovy at same time. Around 3:08 “Automaton” really finds itself with a drop that bridges the gap between synth and dance music – something which many other artists have struggled with.
It is fantastic to hear the synthwave sound continually breaking more and more into the mainstream. We only hope that mainstream artists stay true to the roots of synthwave. One things for certain, Jamiroquai is doing it right. The video and sound of “Automaton” definitely stays true to synthwave tropes. Check it out, you wont be dissapointed!
