Hello Friends,

"Halcyon Days" is an 80s inspired slowburner of a track with a tinge of Melancholia. I have also tried to incorporate a bit of dreamy and cinematic elements (a wee bit contradictory to the melancholic part that is) on top of this. Hope some of you will like this. If you do, then kindly spread the words with your like-minded friends. As always thank you so much for your support :)

Cheers! :tu:

very nice, however, i dont think the kick and snare needed to be as loud as they are (and the snare as dry) for the chill nature of the track. you want focus to be on those great leads, loud drums will distract. really loved the pads,choirs and leads though :tu:
