Retrolust is two-man group dedicated to a rebirth of 80's synth-pop through a fusion of modern electronic and industrial music. The two members (Garret Kai and Trevor Denounce) met in 2006 on an online music-posting site. Upon hearing each other's music, the two decided to collaborate. After the completion of their first song together they discovered a sound, method, and purpose that would be the basis for Retrolust.
Retrolust’s genius lies in the fact that this much sound comes from just two guys. Singer/keyboardist/programmer Garrett Kai’s voice lays flat against the electronic backbeat, which emphasizes the poppy lyrics.
