FM Attack is known as one of the pioneers who helped to create the synthwave movement.

Ryan Gosling said it during an interview while promoting the film Drive. It was 2011 and two years since FM Attack released his 1980s-Synth infused debut album Dreamatic in 2009.

”I was listening to Glass Candy and Nic was listening to Kavinsky and Matt was listening to FM Attack” Gosling says. ”All this sort of dark disco, this hyper-romantic electronic music with this menacing undertone, so we were just aligned on a lot of levels.”

Since his debut album, FM Attack signed a publishing deal with Chrysalis Music which led to remixes for artists such as Tegan and Sara, Trans-X, PNAU, Tesla Boy and Gillian Gilbert from New Order.

The sophomore album Deja Vu was released to critical acclaim in 2013 and featured the vocals of KRISTINE. It is hailed by some as a dreamwave classic.

In 2017 FM Attack released the album Stellar which featured more New Wave, Synthpop and early 80s influences. “This updated sound is unique and fantastic, creating a more wistful and nostalgic feel to the signature FM Attack style and is sure to influence artists in the years to come. An instant classic.”
