In The Spotlight

Next To Neon – “Looking At You”

Rasmus Viberg is a Swedish singer and songwriter who has been present on the music scene for many years, both as a member of several bands and as a solo-artist. Currently he’s still a member of the band MOMENT, which plays an electro-pop blend of contemporary indie shrouded in 80s inspired pop/rock. He has now taken on the moniker Next To Neon to explore the diverse synth-pop side of the 80s.

The first single of his new solo-project is an obviously synth-heavy pop song, but with added glitterball glam from a late 80s disco vibe. The scintillating synths build up in a cinematic crescendo of pastel colored chords and erupts into a high-octane chorus in which his incredible falsetto vocals take pride of place. Paying tribute to the neon decade, this dazzling debut oozes retro-pop appeal.
