Album Review: Reborn by Kavinsky

Excellent, Based on 2 Critics

The Line of Best Fit - 80
Based on rating 8/10

A headline role in the cult soundtrack to Drive would place Kavinsky at the vanguard of a nostalgia-propelled phenomena, pairing the sleeve-rolled Miami Vice aesthetic with all the marauding menace of a John Carpenter score. Unapologetic in its gung-ho glossy '80s pop culture archetypes, the French maestro served sleek, faintly ambiguous goods that would set the standard for countless synthwave imitators in his wake. The Wayfarer-shaded alter-ego of Vincent Belorgey has always occupied a larger-than-life, equally atmospheric, position alongside contemporaries such as Chromatics and College; an impression defied to some extent with Reborn, which establishes itself as a sumptuously feverish, pop-oriented sequel to Outrun's crawling lone wolf isolationism, striking an equilibrium between party-ready perfection and the aloof instrumentals that secured his status.

Clash Music
Opinion: Excellent

Kavinsky was catapulted to fame after his breakout single 'Nightcall' famously featured in the title sequence of Drive (2011). Despite this powerful introduction, Kavinsky took nearly a decade away from releasing music to work on his sound: "After the sudden success of 'Nightcall', I didn't really want to record again. I took two steps back and started to imagine what I was going to record after that, at my own pace." Now, nine years later, Kavinsky is back with 'Reborn' - his first full album since his debut 'OutRun'.
