Scandroid is back! "The Writing’s On The Wall" is the first single released in advance of the artist’s highly anticipated new EP, The Light, and it puts a new spin on the classic Scandroid sound. Riding on a synthpop rhythm laced with robotic synth tones, Klayton delivers one of the smoothest vocal performances on his Scandroid project to date and adds an extra element of interest late in the song with a reverb-heavy guitar section. The result is simultaneously rugged and elegant, old school and modern, and it’s sure to be one of fans’ favorites. The full release of The Light will be available later this year from independent synthwave label FiXT Neon.
Scandroid, the modern Synthwave project from Detroit based artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Celldweller, is Klayton’s love letter to the 80s.
The debut, self-titled album features 15 tracks, ranging from the driving instrumental energy of "Destination Unknown," to melodic vocal tracks like "Awakening With You," "Aphelion," and "Neo-Tokyo," rounded out with the cinematic epics "2517" & "Singularity." As a child of the 80s, Klayton has also included a cover of the classic Tears For Fears song "Shout," that he has been patiently waiting to cover since he first heard the song on U.S. radio in 1985. The digital album concludes with a bonus remix from synthwave artist Waveshaper. The 72 minute album depicts themes of a cyberpunk future where humans and sentient robots struggle to find a connection in their dystopian world.
