On New Album, The Light

Lands Top 5 Electronic Album Charting on iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp

Los Angeles, California – Never one to shy away from creative experimentation, Scandroid amplifies his unique approach to synthwave with a rich blend of genre influences on the new album, The Light, out now from independent synthwave label FiXT Neon.

Following the gentle synth nostalgia of the intro track, “Into the Light,” Scandroid takes listeners through one of the most extraordinary tracklists in synthwave to date, combining authentic ‘80s elements with contemporary production for a diverse and consistently exciting listening experience.

From the synthpop stylings of “Writing’s on the Wall” and “Purified” to the post-punk vibes of “Everywhere You Go” and the chilled-out introspection of “I Remember You,” Scandroid surprises listeners at every turn. The Light further reveals the magnitude of Scandroid’s songwriting skills while crafting a selection of music that flows effortlessly across its running time.

In addition to seven original tracks, The Light includes a selection of thrilling remixes from established and up-and-coming artists alike, including Lucy in Disguise, Fury Weekend, Tommy ‘86, PRIZM, and Turboslash.

The Light is the follow-up to last year’s The Darkness, and together the recordings pave the way to the full release of Scandroid’s epic double album, The Darkness and the Light, due in 2020.

About Scandroid

The synthwave project of Los Angeles-based artist and producer Klayton, Scandroid is a love letter to the ‘80s delivered with modern production and a genre-crossing set of influences. Best known for his work on the multifaceted project Celldweller, Klayton has found a new inspiration for his densely layered compositions by combining ‘80s pop sensibilities with a host of other creative ideas, ranging from classic darkwave to modern electronic music.

The result is an immersive audio experience infused with imaginative sci-fi lyrics and atmosphere. In addition to creating original songs under the Scandroid name, Klayton has also brought his distinctive style to some of his favorite tracks from the ‘80s, including Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and Tears for Fears’ “Shout.”

Scandroid’s music has cracked the Top 10 on the iTunes Electronic Albums chart and the Top 5 on the Billboard Electronic Albums chart. Along with his original songs streaming in the millions, Scandroid’s music has also been the subject of several popular remixes, including a Dance with the Dead remix of “Neo-Tokyo” that has accumulated 12.5 million combined streams between Spotify and YouTube alone.

Following the Scandroid self-titled debut album in 2016, Klayton released a second full-length album, Monochrome, in 2017, as well as The Darkness EP in 2018 that represents the first half of a two-part epic, The Darkness and The Light. The second half, The Light, is scheduled for a Fall 2019 release with the complete album release to follow in 2020.
