Touchy at SXSW

70s and early 80s synth-pop

Touchy is a two-piece pop group created by Patsy Gelb and Christian Blunda. Inspired and impassioned by late 70s and early 80s electronic, disco, and pop, the duo draws from the likes of Giorgio Moroder, Patrick Cowley, Brigitte Bardot and Space to forge their sparkling, electronic sound. Touchy’s trip—if you should choose to join them—is a one-way ticket to a transdimensional synth-based dreamworld of their own ongoing design.

Touchy made their public debut with a 5-week European tour in late 2019. Their first US show, booked for March 14th, 2020, was canceled, reconfiguring the band into an isolated home recording project. Their down time now viewed as an opportunity, they spent the time finishing songs. The first results from these lockdown recordings are “Secret Melody” and “Tout Petit La Planète,” Touchy’s debut singles for Dangerbird Records’ Microdose single series.
