We managed to snag an interview with Starcadian, the artist behind the retro music video He^rt and the full-length album Sunset Blood. During our discussion Starcadian talked about 80’s movies, video games, and pop culture that shaped his album’s sound and music video aesthetics. It became apparent during our conversation that Starcadian is deeply motivated by the emotions he felt watching Labyrinth and other films of his youth.
Starcadian released the soundtrack to 1980’s movie Sunset Blood on October 31, 2013. The album was produced by Starcadian & Paris Smaragdis with additional vocals by DJ Looki. Fun Fact: The movie Sunset Blood doesn’t actually exist, but don’t let that stop you, check out the movie trailer.
