Cicada "Metropolis" reviewed on Music News

"The eighties have made a comeback through the current wave of electro-pop. Sported by Cicada, they blast out their new incredibly infectious single off their forthcoming second album Roulette.

Metropolis has everything that makes an eighties song a successful 2009 hit record. Funky synth bass, dark melodic vocals that sound like Baccara ('yes sir, I can boogie') and synth lines that sound like a 1960’s TV show space station sound effects. You may think this is nothing new, but there is something about this tune that makes it original (well, as original as it can be) and unique. At the end of the day what matters is that this track will be on repeat for a long time before it gets old.

Metropolis will be the next song to take the country by storm. It’s way beyond catchy and will make you get up and dance whenever you hear it."
