Portland, OR synth rockers Fringe Class are a mix of Eighties New Wave with a dash of 21st Century dance music. Their debut EP with the ambitious title Fringe Class Forever is a collection of three upbeat songs and a slow one. The latter, Tidal Waves, relies on a thumping bass and tons of echo on the vocals of lead singer Madeline Goldstein. The lead single Goldmines is pushed forward by the synthesizers - think Depeche Mode meeting The Asteroids Galaxy Tour.
They are young and hungry and their enthousiasm is contagious. A breath of fresh air in the current synth niche.
