squares (stylized as "squʌres" or "SQUɅRES") is an independent synthwave / retrowave artist from Vienna, Austria.
Blending 80s pop sounds with contemporary synthwave, squares creates a soundtrack for his grim, autobiographical lyrics about depression, anxiety and heartbreak, sometimes adding a pinch of 90s Eurodance and a modicum of modern pop. squares was born in 1981 on the rock of Gibraltar. He grew up in the west german town of Bielefeld, before moving to Vienna after a short stint in Berlin. squares is set to release his first album in 2019.
