MIRKO HIRSCH – Love is Blind ; Songs from the Motion Picture Pretty Boy +1 (2021)

Regarded as one of the best current exponents in creating retro Eighties music German musician, singer, songwriter MIRKO HIRSCH has just recorded “Love is Blind ; Songs from the Motion Picture Pretty Boy“, the soundtrack to the forthcoming film ‘Pretty Boy’, a love letter to ’80s slasher movies.
This isn’t a score but all song-format tunes with vocals which bring to mind classic soundtracks like ‘The Lost Boys’, ‘Manhunter’, ‘Fright Night’, etc. Title track “Love is Blind” is meant to be a tribute to a typical power ballad from the mid-80s, it will ‘take your breath away’ 😉
With a production & mix that indeed put us into a time machine, “Love is Blind ; Songs from the Motion Picture Pretty Boy” is indeed a trip back to that naive era, and a lot of fun…

MIRKO HIRSCH (feat. Michael Palace) – Return To Neon (2020)

MIRKO HIRSCH is a German musician, singer, songwriter and producer who for many years has been creating retro ’80s music. Just a quick look at the album cover of his new album and its title ”Return To Neon”, puts clear what this is all about.
While there’s something of the raising Synthwave genre on Mirko’s music, he’s much more pop oriented, heavily influenced by Giorgio Moroder and the Italo Disco scene / synth pop.
Sure, ”Return To Neon” isn’t rocking at all – not the typical music we feature here – but even guitarist Michael Palace (First Signal, Angelica, Toby Hitchcock) performs & produced one song here, and the album as a whole is a true ’80s culture product, so we think it deserved to be featured on this blog.
Fun stuff!
