Limited edition of 75

Toer Populair is a sound unit (duo) from Tokyo, Japan. Inspired by everything '84 - '89, be it music, movies, or TV-shows, Toer Populair makes music with a keen eye for details conjuring up an irony-free and lavish drum-machine and synthesizer based atmosphere that could have been taken from a montage sequence in a romantic mid-80's comedy with people dressed in bright synthetic fabric heading for their cubicles, all perfect hair and puffy shoulder pads, or even an alternative soundtrack to the Secret of My Success shot in Tokyo instead of NYC. The lush electronic arrangements are recorded crystal clear and make the charming details and catchy melodies on Acclimated Stranger stand out like eye-popping candy sprinkled with just a pinch of melancholic drizzle. If you ever wondered what a mix of Todd Rundgreen, Orange Juice, and Scritti Politti would sound like if interpreted by Japanese kids that grew up in video game arcades blasting Super Nintendo soundtracks, Acclimated Stranger is the way to go.
