After releasing projects under the Sleeping Pills and Cold Medicine monikers, Tampa songwriter Phil Taylor is embarking on a new journey that finds him flying the Nasal Spray flag.

The new retro, synth-driven dream-pop project draws influence from Italo-disco acts like Clio and Roberto Ferrante’s Pineapples as well as vaporwave artists like Eyeliner and Body Line. Taylor told CL that his vocals on the new project are inspired by Bryan Ferry, David Bowie and Prince.

Chicago’s Manic Static Records is set to release Nasal Spray’s debut full-length, Endless Night, this summer. Taylor said that songs from the LP “are about the night-life and the deepest feelings of love.”

A release show and U.S. tour are in the works, but you can check out a cut from the album (“All I Want Is You”), along with a sweet photo by Stephanie Agudelobelow.
