It’s safe to say there's a whole lot of '80s love happening in music right now. With so many bands leaning heavily on the New Order and Siouxsie and the Banshees playbook, it’s refreshing to hear music that references that most popular of decades without being obvious. Shaun Hettinger’s new project Memoryy (formerly Kitten Berry Crunch) does this very well. Much like Fischerspooner, Scissor Sisters, and Empire of the Sun before them, Memoryy takes the slick futurism of early-'80s synth, tosses in a bit of disco funk, a touch of afro-pop, and creates a familiar sound that somehow manages to feel current. Their debut album drops in June, featuring the mix-work of James Benjamin (Purity Ring) and Trent Gill (Young Magic).

"...'Come Back' sounds like the type of song that would score a romance set in a '50s-style diner. It has that lived-in nostalgic quality..." - Refinery29
"...Cone has a singular ability to co-exist in several worlds simultaneously. Her moods shift quickly here between homely intimacy and moody emotion almost at once." - The Deli
