The legendary Topgun is back [legendary, according to Cold War Night Life – the fabulous online magazine for electronic music and culture]. And although the band’s upcoming album “Fuck Up and Die” is planned for a early 2017 release, founding member SEM Hilti Johansson, has re-grouped the band as a quartet – with both old and new members – and they are currently in a democrazy mode.
TopGun 2017 is the logic continuance of the 2005 release “TopGun Vs. Hiltipop Rewired” which claimed fame with hard-hitting songs like “Honey” and “The One”.
So expect an eclectic blend of modern EBM with fierce, danceable, beats and pounding rhythms. Juxtaposed against the more aggressive musical stylings are – as always – the softer, raw vocals, with a flair of 80’s synth-pop delivery.
