    Thank you very much for posting this. I love 80s synth music. It's very intense and it takes you on a journey. Music today doesn't do that as much.

    This isn't The Midnight, but it is really good nonetheless. The vocal tracks are outstanding!

    Yes! The Midnight, Robert Parker, Timecop1983, and FM-84 are running this genre

    The Midnight is awesome!
    Plus so many more projects like it out there now.

    Gunship is probably my favorite band.
    Just pre-ordered their new album due out Oct 5th.

    NewRetroWaveSynth stuff is just about all I listen to anymore.
    Don't care for the dark/sinister stuff at all.
    I like the happier more upbeat 80's sounding stuff.

    Edit: just checked out Fightstar...wow, I like them!

    I finally gave this album a listen earlier today....needless to say, it's all I've listened to back-to-back today :lol:

    There's a comment on the video that says that "Running In The Night" would have been a big hit if it had come out in the 80's. I have to agree, that track SLAYS. It just oozes 80's. This is my new favorite genre hahah

    I am extremely happy to see people on here share a passion for synthwave in all its iterations. I got some people hooked on FM-84 and Timecop 1983 recently, I'd say Wolfclub (or W O L F C L U B, however they spell it) and Orax. Here's my contribution to the thread, probably my favorite darker sounding synthwave song.

    I completely agree. That song would have been MASSIVE in the 80s. I can’t stop listening to it and it’s nice to listen to music that puts you in a good mood. This song could have easily been perfect for a climactic part of a hit 80s movie.

    IMO that honor goes to this one:


    New singles... I like "Lost Boy", "America 2" after a first listen is just ok.

    FM84 :banana:

    ^One of my current favorite “bands.” Bought the album, seeing them live soon. That said, I don’t know if they’ll ever top Near Dark.
