Testcard F – Under 30

Testcard F - Under 30With "Under 30", "Testcard F" from England presents a song that exudes a naive and nos­tal­gic vibe. The melody is remin­is­cent of 80s clas­sics such as "Video Killed the Radio Star", but also brings in a pinch of 2000s elec­tro­clash. This fas­cin­at­ing com­bin­a­tion is no coin­cid­ence, as the band already had sev­er­al hits in the scene in the early 80s. After a break of almost 40 years, they now want to take off again. We pub­lished their 1983 song "Unfamiliar Room" in our art­icle "Discover 20 lost gems of 80's Synth Pop and Dark Wave".

The sound is def­in­itely nos­tal­gic, with an ener­get­ic touch. The mood of the song is naive, which is reflec­ted in the catchy melody and the con­cise beats. The lyr­ics tell the story of a middle-aged woman singing about the idea of enter­ing into an unwise rela­tion­ship with a man in his 20s.

"Under 30" is more than just a trib­ute to past music­al eras; it is a suc­cess­ful attempt to fuse the time­less sound of the 80s with mod­ern ele­ments. The band man­ages to bridge the dec­ades while cre­at­ing a unique, ener­get­ic atmo­sphere that not only evokes nos­tal­gia but also offers a fresh, con­tem­por­ary touch. This song is part of our Spotify playl­ist ‘New Synth Pop Songs 2024‘. The playl­ist is updated con­tinu­ously. Follow this playl­ist now and don’t miss any of the latest synth pop hits in 2024.

Lyrics of "Testcard F – Under 30"

Soap and water,
Guess I oughta,
Go and wash my hands.
Wash away the blood and dirt and sadness.
Bet your daughter,
I have sought a,
Way to understand.
But I think that, on reflection,
I have no objection.

I don’t mind,
Get my hands dirty,
I don’t mind,
You’re under thirty.

When the coloured,
Lights are bright and
When the air is warm,
There is one thing,
We agree on,
We can’t res­ist the neon.

I don’t mind (etc)

There is one,
Thing we agree on,
We can not,
Resist the neon.

I don’t mind (etc)
