Product description

Product Description

GUNSHIP is a neon soaked, late night, sonic getaway drive, dripping with luscious analogue synthesizers, cinematic vocals and cyberpunk values, exploding from the front cover of a dusty plastic VHS case which has lain forgotten since 1984. Created by Dan Haigh, Alex Westaway and Alex Gingell, GUNSHIP is an evolution of the of the recently popularised synthwave genre, which was originally started by Rosso Corsa records & The Valerie Collective artists.

GUNSHIP is more of a story than a soundtrack, written large across an eighties action cinema screen, where the narrative interweaves romance, hope, fear, technology, the threat of nuclear obliteration, and ultimately the need to celebrate life. Both bleak and dystopian at times but also progressive, uplifting and danceable.

The new album also features guest vocals by John Carpenter, Charlie Simpson (Fightstar), Lou Hayter (New Young Pony Club), Martin Grech, and Stella Le Page. Upcoming remixes include Miami Nights 1984, Make Up And Vanity Set, April Towers and Carpenter Brut.

What can I say about this album, I love it, after finding Gunship on youtube by accident I have watched all their videos and became an instant fan. A suggestion if you like the music watch the film The Turbo Kid, which features a Gunship song and is really fun. I always buy CD's if I get in to something there is nothing quite like blasting it out on a proper stereo, if you love 80's nostalgia and electro pop then this is the album for you, I just hope Amazon sell any albums they make in the future.

80's style synths and drums, modern production, and fantastic tunes. Really a very good album.

Sci-fi meets HiFi, and the result is an immersive, sometimes atmospheric trip to the stars.

Embrace the 80s - embrace the midlife crisis.. buy a white sports coupe, get some wrap around sunglasses, or aviators..
Perhaps a white suits, pastel socks and a pleather belt.. wear the lot with a pastel tshirt.

Now go cruise about town.

Go on..

This Album and Neon Neon Stainless Style are fantastic for just that.

That is of course if you're not into Jan Hammer.

Gunship is the lost soundtrack for a generation brought up on a diet of 80s popular culture. Make no mistake, this album is the find of the year and is destined for cult status. Introduced to it via collaborator Martin Grech, this CD has been on a loop for days on end now; and I can scarcely see its appeal diminishing.

I feel it's more than simply a homage to the oft-maligned decade, such is their authenticity that any of the tracks would not be out of place heard on a preppy high-school coming-of-age or a dystopian sci-fi flick. Boosting their 'cool' quotient further still they've managed to enlist the services of 80s legend John Carpenter on Tech Noir (possibly one of the finest tracks on the album to boot).

Opening track The Mountain, with its pulsing synths and vocal arrangements, is guaranteed to put a nostalgic smile on your face. From there the album carries on in the same vein, though never feeling same-y, with track after track of effortless synth pop heaven. I guarantee that you will punch the air at least once after listening to this for the first time.

My happiness will be complete should they announce any live UK dates. Neon glo-sticks a-go-go.

Fresh, catchy, interesting and so so retro!!! Love the 80's character synth sound on this album. No fear though as this isnt a cheesy remake of those poppy one hit wonders.
This is new, serious, engaging music!
Being a nostalgia prone wrinkly I thought I'd test how good this album is and was pleased to see the nodding acknowledgement of my ten year old daughter.
A drive time classic for me! Well produced, great songs and packed with ear worms.... When "Tech Noir" isn't playing on my CD player its playing in my head. If you can watch the video for "Fly for your life" do so its a visual and audio treat.

100% recommended

I've been anticipating this album for a long time and it certainly didn't disappoint. Blown away by the attention to detail and every song is fantastic. Would definitely recommend.
