Hello Friends,

Paradise - This is a simple down-tempo romantic melody (with few 80s elements) attempt from me.

Do give it a listen, when you can. TIA :tu:

Interesting...your track has strong Synthwave, Synth Pop overtones. The melody reminds me of Italo Disco stuff from the 80s. Overall, I dig the mood. However, it kind of goes wrong with a few sounds, for example that muted sax sounds out of place for me, the sound itself and the melody.

But you have a strong Synthwave track in the making there. If you signal that in the thread title you might get more listens, since the 'romantic melody' bit could put people off.

By the way, I see you are from Tamil Nadu, I've been to Chennai recently. :D
