Lebrock’s sound is a departure from your traditional outrun sound. This UK duo somehow manages to combine the old sounds of the 80s hair bands with modern pop elements to form a sound that is uniquely their own.
Right now there are very few synthwave groups doing what Lebrock is doing and almost no one that can deliver vocals as well as the groups singer Shaun Phillips. Lebrock are quite an anomaly in the synthwave realm.
A few months back I had the good fortune to speak with Michael and Shaun to talk about their music. What came of it was much more than I could ever have hoped for. Not only are the two very talented, it turns out they are a really great guys. Our discussion quickly veered in many interesting directions with topics ranging from music, to touring, to really bad Netflix show ideas.
