‘You Steal My Heart’ marks the third album for Spectral Display and debut for dutch singer Paul Simon, who also incorporate R&B, and pop into his unconstrained sound.
The group’s songs are influenced by artists such as Rick Wakeman, Krafwerk, George Michael, David Bowie, Yello, Steely Dan and inspiring producers like Trevor Horn, Quincy Jones & Alan Parsons.
Michel Mulders invited several collaborators to the recordings, including female singers A3ana, Maxine, Mandy Huydts, Ticha, male singers Harry B, Bryan B, guitarists Bert Meulendijk, Lex Bolderdijk, Arie Storm & bass player Michel van Schie.
Much more likely to appeal to open-minded electronic fans and those with eclectic tastes than to strictly pop fans, the impressive collection offers original tunes, including the atmospheric and wistful ‘Chained Melody’ and virtuosic ‘You Give Me Wings’.
