Standalone Clone

Standalone Clone (Olav S. Flaa) is a producer and musician from Norway. My music can be described as synth pop with influences from the 70s, 80s and 90s. Some of the songs are instrumentals, some are with vocals. I love experimenting with analog synths to obtain a personal sound.

About my songs:

Standalone Clone - Chasing Robin Hood

28/2/2020: "Chasing Robin Hood" is a synth pop instrumental. I was trying to give the listener a sense of traveling through a fairy tale landscape. In combination with the obvious parallels to 80s music, this can give associations to retro game music. The sound is formed by a rather unusual mix of instruments (analog synth, electric bass and classic drum machine sounds from the 80s) and is a bit grittier than what is common in synth pop music. I played all instruments, produced, mixed and mastered the track. The nice cover illustration is by Gerd Altmann.

Standalone Clone - Only you

25/10/2019: "Only you" is a cover version of the pop classic written by Vince Clarke and first released by the duo Yazoo in 1982. This is a simple and beautiful pop song. However, it also has experimental musical elements which make it different from many standard pop ballads. I did the musical arrangement, played all instruments on an analog synth, programmed the drums, mixed and mastered the track. The young (16 years old) and talented Sigrid Øverland Kjeka did the main vocals and Erik Flaa kindly helped with the backing vocals, thanks so much! The nice cover illustration is by Gerd Altmann.

Standalone Clone - Popcorn

23/8/2019: "Popcorn" is a cover version of the instrumental synth classic written by Gershon Kingsley in 1969. However, Hot Butters cover version released in 1972 brought the song to the charts. There are many cover versions of this song out there, but I do believe my version is a new approach to the song. I did the musical arrangement, played all instruments on an analog synth, mixed and mastered the track. I also programmed the drums based on samples played by Jon Anders Vold, thanks so much for your help! The nice cover illustration is by Peggy and Marco Lachmann-Anke.

Standalone Clone - I won't let the sun go down on me

27/4/2019: "I won't let the sun go down on me" is a cover song written by Nik Kershaw (first released in 1983). The young and talented Isak Sæheim Pedersen did the vocals and former bandmate Kai Even Waterloo Laugtug played the drums. Thanks a lot for your great work! I played the other instruments on an analog synth. I also did the musical arrangement, mixed and mastered the song.
