Summary
In a Tidal Wave of Mystery, the full-length debut album from Capital Cities, is an infectious mix of synth-heavy dance pop. These musically ambitious productions touch upon 1980s new wave and 1970s disco in the band's own unique, lo-fi way. In fact, part of the album's charm is that many of the songs here sound like keyboard-heavy demos that were perhaps meant to be fleshed out with various instruments but never were. Hence, the preponderance of synth trumpet, digital strings, and other extremely old-school-sounding electronic samples. The result is that the album brings to mind the early, innovative electronic music of artists who were earnestly taken with the explicitly computer-generated sounds of the modern wonder that was the synthesizer. Featured on the album is the Top Ten radio hit "Safe and Sound." -- Editorial Review provided by Matt Collar for All Music Guide, taken and adapted from Barnes And Noble website
