Music and time periods go hand in hand. Without the creativity and strong emotions born out of music, certain time periods would cease to exist in the minds of today’s youth. The 90s wouldn’t be as memorable now if it wasn’t for the surge of alternative and hip hop music. It’s one of the things that help keep us grounded in reality. As we push forward and expand on the sounds that we grew up with, the need for new experimental music rises. 10pmtoclose, an electric/synth duo, steps up to the plate.
10pmtoclose, still fairly new to the music industry, has the storytelling and boldness to match their sound. Pulled from the 80s dance craze with a modern twist, 10pmtoclose’s approach to music is filled with great excitement and warmth. For this week’s TUC Next Up, we sit down with the duo and discuss their love letter to Pat Swayze, their love of the 80s, and the backstory of that mysterious Gianni Versace intro on their self-titled EP.
