Room 1985 is the self-titled debut Psychedelic-Electronic rock album from the Manchester UK based duo Chris Crysand and John Hulse.
The debut single “The Door” will take you hand-in-hand to lands where Pink Floyd meet Public Service Broadcasting and The Editors meet God Is An Astronaut, all bound together for a 21st-century tsunami sound wave.
Room 1985 an emotional and ethereal driven album with 11 tracks (plus 6 extra) that will bring together an explosion of influences and styles from Psychedelia to Ambient, Rock to Funk and from digital to analog dreams. With this unique debut concept album the band attempts to mix retro 80’s synths, and rock guitars with modern production techniques, bluesy and dream–like guitar solos, and huge eclectic power drumming.
Drawing on the soundtracks of some classic sci-fi movies – with the genius of John Carpenter and the deep subconscious – each track, both in live performances and in the studio, pushes the concept forward and puts the listener in the eye of the story, driving the classic concept music style of the alternative 1970’s, the joy of the 80’s and the touch of today’s sound in one gigantic wave of emotions.

Chris Crysand: Guitars, Bass Guitar, Keyboards, Synths.
John Hulse: Drums, Percussions, Electronic Drums, Programming.
