This was a complete surprise. By predating the pre-millennial synth pop craze by a good four years, this 1994 release contains the charm of a pepped-up Depeche Mode, New Order, and Dead or Alive. The Globe churn out a lo-fi pop sound that's driven by a hybrid of hyper keyboards, electronic drums, male/female vocals, and an eight-track production. Although this isn't the most danceable pop music out there, the Globe are still a party who will probably receive no credit for being one of the first bands to reinstate the '80s synth pop nostalgia.
