Arcade High - High School Fantasy
Managing to sound at once like the past and the future with vintage modulations, lo-fi washes, delay-drenched elements and reverb resplendent hits. A Plucky synth pattern stabs intro and Melodic bass fill the air as a washy lead line chimes and tingles, then evaporates, washing over you like a dream.
At an American high school, glossy hair, cars and sports jackets. The tune repetitive, beautiful, thoughtful restrained.
As a tasty roster of classic instruments come and go retro rhythms feels, analogue nostalgia abounds.
Recalling sun-drenched memories from the eighties, whilst also creating new distant memories. Teenage days, lost loves, eternal summer.
