[Chillwave] Neon Cities - In Waves

First Neon Cities tune in which I sing. This was meant to be a chillwave sort of tune with an 80's throwback sort of vibe, hence the Farilight CMI sample at the end a la Tears for Fears "Shout"

Fairlight CMI - on an iPad, what an era we live in!

Enjoy!

Re: [Chillwave] Neon Cities - In Waves

This reminds me a bit of the Cure somehow. Which can only be a good thing right? : ) The song has me thinking about the body of work NC has compiled and I think you two have a pretty compelling set of songs. It feels like a solid 'something for everybody' release. Features a lot of influences and skill sets from both members. I think I want more of the rhythm guitar in the mix. At least after the vocal part in the middle. It really helps my body/mind make sense of the beat.

The fairlight sample is the little vocal doo-hicky that comes in after the lyrics? I'm digging that. Fits right into the vibe of this track for sure. Nicely mixed into the texture of things as well.

Ya'll have got something here.

Re: [Chillwave] Neon Cities - In Waves

Which bit is the Fairlight sample? The high pitch lead at the end?
Great tune, now please return Dave Gahan to his loved ones, they are worried.
That Fairlight app is pretty cool too btw, an de it can actually sample!

So when’s the album due?

Thanks for listening sir! We've completed 11 tunes thus far and rather than jumping to self release a record we're working on an Electronic Press Kit and are shooting to send demo's out by the end of Feb.

The fairlight sample is in deed the feminine sounding vocal doo-hicky, its used on Tears for Fears, Genesis, Art of Noise et al, as it was part of the factory sounds that came w the CMI, I've been picking and choosing sounds out of there for purely nostalgic reasons, playing those patches recall for me a period of time and is quite inspiring. (:
