When Magdiel Montano decides to channel the darkwave of yore, he becomes DE PALMA. With help from producers Aaron Andersen and Connor Foley, the Santa Ana denizen manages to conjure a brooding synth-pop vibe of throwback digi-beats, sharply slicing synths, and aptly ambient guitars. Here’s his debut single “Synthetic.”
“Is this romantic love or synthetic feel?”
DE PALMA will perform on December 21st at The Wayfarer.
