Introducing..... 808 Dot Pop

808 Dot Pop is the new side project of Metroland band member, Passenger S and he has been working on a new album called "The Colour Temperature", an album that has a lighter sound than Metroland releases, however, like Metroland releases, the album and associated releases are based around a concept.

The concept for this project is "The Colour Temperature", which is a way to describe the light appearance provided by a light bulb. It is measured in degrees of Kelvin (K) on a scale from 1,000 to 10,000. Typically, Kelvin temperatures for commercial and residential lighting applications fall somewhere on a scale from 2000K to 6500K.

A fascinating subject about something we all use in our homes.

The first single to be released, by 808 Dot Pop was the track Blackbodies.
