Song of the Day: Voie 81 – 1989

Voie 81 is a Parisian pop wave electro duo, which adds the female voices of three European capitals: Paris, Madrid and Berlin. Their music finds its inspiration in the 1980s’analogical sound. The lyrics are unifying and socially committed, performed in German, English, Spanish and French. They are Kraftwerk’s long lost sons or the result of David Gahan’s multiple affairs during his 1988 tour in the US. It might also be a reconditioning of Bishop that Ridley Scott kept in the fridge? Or two rebel students who did not attend their classes and stayed in their room to compose their music? Actually, the truth is even more impressive… Voie 81 is two policemen jaded with their everyday life, who finally wrote songs about women’s complaints in a 19th Parisian district’s police station. Here’s 1989, enjoy!
