The Actor - "Lights" / by Matt Bomarr

Early 80's (German, I believe) synthpop from Marcel Reimer and Sander Horsthuis.  A duo known for their lo-fi cassette releases featuring dark, but danceable pop songs about fashion, modernism and appearance, sung in German and English.  This song appeared on their 1982 cassette Exploded View (Trumpett Records), and has since shown up on the extremely impressive Wierd Records compilation Cold Waves and Minimal Electronics, which you can buy here.
