Fuji Hideout may be just nineteen years old, but that doesn’t stop him from going full 80s on his latest single ‘Another Life.’
Fuji Hideout ‘Another Life’
The upbeat song, would be right at home on the soundtrack of a John Hughes movie. ‘Another Life’ is the kind of thing you listen to while you’re driving with the top down, ecstatic because the person you like finally said you can take them to prom.
Marcus Bishop is the man behind Fuji Hideout, a UK-based bedroom pop project. Bishop’s family are bonafide music lovers, and growing up, songs from different decades were always playing throughout the house. That early exposure was crucial to the development of Bishop’s style, and he soon fell in love with ‘80s production.
By the time he was thirteen, Bishop was already producing his own music. But his career kicked into a whole new gear at sixteen, when he received a Macbook and began using professional software to create his own sound.
Fuji Hideout’s style can be described as modern indie dream pop that knows where it comes from. His music sounds like the lovechild of Tears for Fears and M83, elevated by a dash of modern flair. By fusing 80s style synthesizers with modern alternative pop, Bishop creates a relentlessly addictive sound dripping with bittersweet nostalgia.
And that’s just the way he likes it. Now beginning adulthood, Bishop spends a lot of time reminiscing over those formative teenage years, which he channels into writing and producing music. All the better for us as listeners — thanks to Fuji Hideout, nostalgia has never sounded so hopeful.
‘Another Life’ is the kind of thing you listen to while you’re driving with the top down, ecstatic because the person you like finally said you can take them to prom.
