[Double Single] Perfect Female Type – ‘Romancing the Stone’ | ‘The Jewel of the Nile’

Jason Herrboldt, the genius behind Perfect Female Type, totally nails it with his synthwave designs, bringing the 80s right back into our lives. His latest double-single, “Romancing the Stone” and “The Jewel of the Nile,” named after those epic 80s adventure flicks with Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner, screams nostalgia.

“Romancing the Stone” could easily be the theme for an 80s cop show, bursting with juicy analog synths, wild Latin percussion, and an electric guitar solo that takes you straight to MTV’s golden days. It’s got that Beverly Hills Cop vibe, capturing the essence of 80s creativity and style. This marks Herrboldt’s fourth single this year, alongside the buzzing hit “Fast Cars Break Hearts,” still racking up streams.

The B-side, “The Jewel of the Nile,” is another gem. Fast-paced and drenched in synth nostalgia, it complements the lead single perfectly, offering a thrilling 80s ride. Jason’s love for synths started with Beverly Hills Cop’s “Axel F Theme,” which he played nonstop on his little Casio keyboard.

Perfect Female Type, inspired by synthwave legends like Duett, Phaserland, and Sferro, mixes East Coast freestyle, Minneapolis funk, and early ’90s dance into something fresh and nostalgic. Herrboldt’s “Romancing the Stone” and “The Jewel of the Nile” let you dive into those lush, cinematic 80s vibes, proving that the past can totally rock the future.
