138: FM-84 feat. Ollie Wride – Don’t Want To Change Your Mind

 

FM-84, a Glaswegian bearer of “cinematic chillwave” now found in the vicinity of San Francisco and real sunlight, clearly takes more than a few nods from the direction of M83. His artist name alone is a complete giveaway. Thankfully, in debut album Atlas – the album that will forever be remembered by me as the one that I actually downloaded from Bandcamp – he shows a superb grasp of the treasured 80s synthpop aesthetic that doesn’t verge on the goofy. ‘Don’t Want To Change Your Mind,’ the track of his that sent me down this serene rabbit hole after I picked it up on Twitter last night, is a wistful highlight of the likes I haven’t heard since ‘Love Somebody.’
