dead calm and zero degrees: 2nd place best album of 2020 by forever synth
The hugely unorthodox and cinematic ‘Dead Calm and Zero Degrees’ by Hunter Complex takes 2nd place in our ‘Best Album’ of 2020 category.
Lars has a habit of making music that sounds like synthwave but we’re not entirely sure that’s his aim. There’s nothing 80s-sounding about this release but perhaps that’s why we like it so much…it truly stands aside from conventional synthwave.
There’s something truly beautiful in the serenity, calmness and pure tranquility of the tracks on this album & they’ll send you a world away from the harsh reality of what we’ve all been through in 2020.
TIP: If you’re a surfer or beach-goer, pick a sunny day with a decent swell and have the track ‘Riptide’ blaring through your headphones. You’ll thank us later!
Truly great work dude on this album dude! 👊

karl magi / hubpages: my favourite synth albums of 2020
‘The beautiful, rich and textured melodies that Hunter Complex wrote for this album were one of the reasons why this album stood out for me as one of my favourites. They explored the full range of emotion from loneliness to melancholy and gentleness to warmth.’
