For the third consecutive week, HBO’s Westworld features the most popular song last week. The episode titled “Genre,” which aired on April 12th, ends with an electroclash track from NYC duo Fischerspooner.
Fischerspooner is a duo formed in 1998 by Warren Fischer, a classically trained musician, and Casey Spooner, a video-artist and experimental theater performer. Warren and Casey met at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The two multi-media artists draw inspiration from 1980s synth and dance pop.
‘Emerge’ was Fischerspooner’s first hit single, released on the duo’s debut album, #1, in 2001. Fischerspooner released three other albums after #1, Odyssey (2005), Entertainment (2009) and SIR (2018). Over the years, Fischerspooner grew from a duo to a band with guitar, keyboards, and additional vocalists. The group announced their breakup via Instagram in October 2019.
