Happy Days with Canadian Synthpop Stylist Ralph

The quality of alternative including progressive pop music has risen in the early months of 2017. The best extended play record of the year to date harnesses the sound of that decade that began with the release of Atari’s Missile Command and closed out with the introduction of the first Game Boys. Synthpop crafted by Toronto’s slick stylist of cool, Ralph, now finding herself signed to prestigious label 604 Records, borders on the excellence delivered by Tegan & Sara on the duo’s last two LPs. The eponymous EP from Ralph is required listening for fans of the genre. Find half a dozen bright, bubbly, and melodic gems that conjure up scenes of playing Tomy’s Waterful Ring-Toss. If nothing else, track “Tease” should make your day. MV embedded below.  iTunes
