Back to the Retro genre for me for this track.
As always, feedback always welcome on arrangement, mixing etc.

Don't you wish you could hop in a time machine, go back to the 80s and have a career? Well done, as usual.

Thanks. Yes, a time machine would be handy for a few reasons. I don't know if I would have made it as a producer though, since in this era I have access to a huge knowledgebase online thats really helped me, plus access to great sounding gear and plugins that have made a big difference to my sound. And I've still a long way to go.

Little trip back in time isn't so bad now and then. I enjoyed listening to this. I especially liked the bassline and vocals. Nicely done.

Simple and appealing synthpop. Generally good although I thought from 1:04-1:33 the backing track's energy dropped and the vocals didn't work as well.

Nice tune! Songwriting, guitars and vocal delivery remind me of the Jesus and Mary Chain. Retro influenced, but it definitely feels contemporary to me.

Thanks. I put the chorus first, and that time period was the verse. I wanted to bring the energy down for the verse. I've noted your feedback though, thanks for the input.

@Noel... thanks,thats a band that passed me by. I looked them up on YT. Pretty good. I was more familiar with The Cure.

@ecamburn.., thanks for the nice feedback :tu:
