Look, it's not actually an achievement to have a fake '80s New Wave sound. That's a matter of stylistic tics that can all but be achieved by hitting a preset button on the appropriate synth. You have to be totally affected _and_ totally sincere about it _and_ have the hooks to wrap around the formal conventions--otherwise you just end up with off-center B-sides, if you see what I'm saying. Like this does.
