[SYNTH POP] So many people born in the ’80s are fascinated with the music and culture they were too young to fully appreciate at the time. Some of them even seem to be inventing an alternate timeline, wherein that era’s style of pop music continues to thrive. Case in point: Swedish synth-pop wunder Kate Boy and local opener Daniel Rafn. For these artists, Tron and Devo and Patrick Nagel are all alive and well. Kate Boy (hint, she’s not a boy) keeps things cool and Euro-stylish. Rafn’s bizarre new video, meanwhile, does include some boyish sex appeal, but it also recalls The Cars’ “You Might Think” and Honey I Shrunk the Kids with its cheap CGI and general, dada-esque visual vibe.
