Diamond Field and Bob Haro struck catchy synth-pop gold with “Won’t Compromise” earlier this year. The melody, the chorus, that video: It all gets stuck in your head and, thankfully, won’t leave. Now, Sofa King Vinyl is bringing that snappy synth-pop to 7-inch vinyl as part of its new Synthy Sevens series. You can buy it on Bandcamp.
Read on to learn all of the important details.
“Won’t Compromise,” backed with a Le Flex remix of the song, marks the debut of the Synthy Sevens series, which is designed to highlight 80s-inspired music in a nice little 7-inch package. The songs were mastered especially for vinyl.
The song is Diamond Field’s fourth single release, with BMX legend Bob Haro taking on vocal duties this time around. Haro has been surreptitiously creating original electronic music for years and “Won’t Compromise” showed Haro’s wider entry into the musical sphere. Readers will recognize Le Flex, the UK-based artist with George Michael-style vocals and brilliantly meticulous ’80s production. He recently signed with the Demon Music Group, home to the likes of Suede, T. Rex, Ian Dury, Belinda Carlisle, and Simple Minds.
The “Won’t Compromise” Synthy Seven comes in several color variants, most of which are limited to 50 copies or fewer — some perhaps just 20 or 25 in count. (Some shown below.) The first 100 orders will also receive a free Synthy Sevens 45rpm spindle adapter.
As mentioned above, you can buy one right now. You probably should act fast, too. People really like this song.
