Michael Oakley’s captivating beats and ethereal synthesisers have given a fresh approach and revival to classic 80’s pop. Hailing from Glasgow Scotland, dance/electro artist Oakley has successfully created an innovative style, defying the mainstream with the combination of minimalistic yet memorable melodies with electronic synth-pop. The result is a body of work which celebrates the 80’s – an era of revolutionary artistry but yet feels modern and dynamic.
Described as “melancholic postcards from the heart wrapped up in synthesisers and drum machines”, Michael Oakley’s highly anticipated EP is sure to be a sentimental journey back to one of the most significant decades of musical history. Working with the likes of Pete Maher (U2, Depeche Mode, The Killers) Oakley’s music has already had the stamp of approval from industry professionals. California is due for release fall 2017 worldwide.
