Influenced by all of the great synth bands, Boise’s Trans Atlantic Crush used only synthesizers and drums machines to forge their retro sound. This album — currently on sale at the RX for $9.99 — is dedicated to all the fans of synthpop and to all the bands that gave Trans Atlantic Crush inspiration.
The band’s style is best described as retro synth romantics. Their sound echoes and resembles the great synth bands from years past and present. Trans Atlantic Crush infuses their unique style of music with huge hooks and modern pop sensibility.
The band consists of Jim Cochell (songwriting and keyboards), Karlin Nichols (vocals/songwriting), Hawk Dobbins (drums and percussion programming) and Troy Shreve (keyboards). Trans Atlantic Crush worked with the UK’s Grammy award winner and engineer of the year Guy Massey for 140 dB on this latest endeavor. Viva la Crush!!!
