'The Look' is finally a classic synth pop track with great synth sounds and melancholic melodies by the US band 'Pattern 20'. At the first synth sounds I was mentally at 'And One', but in the further course of the song I have to admit that the band have their very own style despite clear models like Depeche Mode, OMD and Erasure.
The sound definitely has a retro charm. If I didn't know that this was a current song, I would probably put it somewhere in the late 90s and think it would be a fantastic candidate for the label 'A Different Drum' (1996–2014). I hope we hear more great songs like this from 'Pattern 20' over the next few years.
