Synth Single Review: "Mater Moon" by Alvin Eighties

Karl is a longtime freelancer who's passionate about music, art, and writing.


Alvin Eighties’ Mater Moon is full of rushing energy and excitement as it unfolds. Steady snare drum moves along with laid back, groovy electric bass and quick guitar flashes. Swirling synth sounds dance below the unfurling guitar as it glides with a loose-limbed feeling.

A melody that evokes easy gliding comes in before shouts and an aggressive guitar slice into the music. Soaring power pours from the guitar above the cruising bass line above the quickly shivering drums. The guitar cries out above the percussion and the pounding bass. Charging synth tumbles through the track while Alvin Eighties’ guitar leaps, soloing with rushing energy and intricacy.

Trembling drums and shaping bass move as energy pours from the undulating synth that dances under the guitar. Wide-sounding, cascading synth pulses are slashed by gruff guitar as the drums rebound below and the bass guides the music. Bright, flashing synth dances and the track ends on relaxed electric bass.
