Victim Cache was started in the summer of 2010 by John Quarles and Tim Soderstrom as an experimental hybrid-chiptune band focused on trying to find new ways to integrate chiptunes with other styles of music. The first pioneering genre was Chipsurf, the fusion of raging surf guitar and chiptune elements largely featuring the sounds of the NES that culminated into a full album entitled Chipsurf Pipeline. Our Second album, Hero, was a bit of a departure combining acoustic/folk elements with the chiptune sound into a genre we called “acoustichip.” Our next upcoming album is more of a synthwave sound, paying homage to some of the stylistic elements of the 80’s.
