PJ chats with Goblin Problem, Jack Buchanan’s solo synth-pop project about his new four-song EP, The Problem.
Buchanan’s a multi-instrumentalist and also a member of Cheap Sav for Dead Friends.
There’s an element of stepping back into the synthesizer-led 1980s about The Problem, with Blackout Music saying “Goblin Problem’s unique brand of alt-dance indietronica synth-pop is inspired by artists such as Hot Chip, John Grant, Depeche Mode, and LCD Soundsystem”.
“Cheery themes of nihilism, confusion, and self-destruction are at the heart of Buchanan’s lyrics, presented with a dry, self-aware humour. Goblin Problem delights in the general confusion at being alive, and the difficulty and absurdity of the world we live in, threads firmly juxtaposed against the backdrop of his bright and playful instrumentation.”
Says Buchanan: “I love to party, and I really like the idea of making party music that is about how bad the party is. It should make you want to dance and cry in equal measure, or hopefully it makes people just want to dance and yell and have the time of their lives.”
