This week's Songs of the Day were selected by DJ Sharlese, in honor of World Goth Day. All day on Monday, May 22nd, KEXP will celebrate the sound of darkness, as KEXP DJ’s Evil Eva, Noctis Ravenway, Wednesday Addams, Scary Larry, and Kevin Cole-d Hearted play goth favorites, old and new, from around the world, all day from 7 AM to 7 PM Pacific. 


On today's Song of the Day, Singaporean synth-pop duo PROSPEXX take us back to the '80s with their darkwave dance tracks.

In an interview with Unite Asia, vocalist Vanessa explains that she and her bandmate Hafiz have always been into synthwave. "Both of us are super into 80s music, and the dystopian-esque vibe from the pandemic just happened to give us that huge push to actually do something about it," she explains of the band's inception. "It really isn’t like anything we do with any of our other bands and projects, plus the lockdowns made it hard for us to get together with any of our other friends anyway. So I guess it was borne out of both a love for the '80s and the absolute necessity to continue creating in a time of bleakness.”

While most of the group's songs are song by Vanessa, today's track features guest vocals by Azril, singing in Bahasa, a form of Malay spoken in Malaysia, Singapore, and Brunei.
