College, Electric Youth and Anoraak Headline Drive Tour at Grand Central on August 14
|Ryan Gosling in Drive.|
And whether you're one of the countless chicks swooning and drooling over RyGos, the dreamy yet dangerous loverboy-next-door or a dude amped up by Gosling's stoic skull-cracking badassery, the one thing both sexes can agree on is the sheer awesomeness of the film's soundtrack.
Moody, ethereal synth tuneage from indie electronic acts like Kavinsky, College, Electric Youth, and Anoraak imbued Drive with a special neo-noir atmosphere that lifted it above Hollywood B-movie standards and into art-house territory.
One of the soundtrack standouts, for instance, is "A Real Hero," a collaboration between French producer College (AKA David Grellier) and Toronto duo Electric Youth. Both acts are renowned for their retro-electro sound, imbuing cinematic '80s synth arrangements with propulsive modern dancefloor grooves.
Catch both College and Electric Youth along with Anoraak on Tuesday, August 14, when they stop by Grand Central in support of the Drive Tour.
RyGos may or may not make an appearance in a silver scorpion jacket.
