Album Review: Blue Wave (Operators)

Operators’ is categorized under “Dance & House” on iTunes, but they describe themselves as analog post-punk as well. The musical diversity allows them to bring back ‘80s signature sounds without compromising their edginess. Blue Wave, their debut album, is a project led by Dan Boeckner (Divine Fits, Wolf Parade). Track #3 (“Cold Light”) is the lead single and doesn’t disappoint with its full, synth-rock sound and summer anthem feel. “Control” and “Nobody” dance into the techno world while “Shape of Things” and “Evil” showcase the band’s rock and roll abilities. The album closes with “Space Needle” and proves that Boeckner isn’t afraid to be emotional with his vocals.
