Eighties Kunst: Chris Price
Get out your peepers, square-end neck ties and checkerboard Vans for pop singer Chris Price. The Washington DC based artist flashbacks to the '80s with the nostalgic "Charge Me Up" [MP3 link removed] that is taken from his forthcoming EP "The Identity Crisis." The song is a delicious slice of minimalist '80s electro pop that is reminiscent of late new wavers Human League and New Order.
With today's pop culture full of trivial '80s elements, Price, 27, is one of the few artists that puts his own spin on classic synth pop. Amusing Chris Price tidbit is that he is a great fan of Kirsten Dunst and considered to name his band Dirsten Kunst ('kunst' is German for 'art') as a homage to the actress.
