The golden age of Synth Rock

Mike "Team Crispy" Allen has the ability to take something which was great, and make it even greater. The sounds of 80s synth, but with a darker, industrial and moody feel. Mike's vocals interplay perfectly with every track he makes, in a way which makes me feel like i am going both back and forward in time. Every song is an absolute banger, and pairs perfectly for those night rides into oblivion. Listen and you will be a fan!

Only the Host
Heavy and Contagious until it breaks your heart

Thrilled to have found Mike Allen's music, and can't save enough good things about the latest EP "Stand and Walk". It starts off a bit funky and bouncy until your Face is melted by a wall of guitar tone. Mike's vocal performance sounds like the culmination of desperation, sadness, and anger with just the right amount of saturation on the opening tract "Let them Talk". Once you find yourself at the end with the Title track "Stand and Walk" I'd be surprised if you didn't find yourself sitting and reflecting instead. Everything in between? You'll need to hear it.
