This review covers the synth-pop track Sad January – Twilight Zone.
This track was released in 2014 on the compilation album Neonautics V.01.
A big feature is the vocals. The way they deliver the lyrics can be quite catchy – especially in the main chorus. There was some interesting layering going on as well.
The vocals do take a bit to unpack, but they seem to be talking about how people can be lost in their own world. You get whatever you imagine, but being lost in ones imagination is also a solitary experience. Certainly an interesting take on things.
Synth elements are, of course, a big thing in this track. The bassline is decent enough, though what makes this track good are the additional melodies and effects. They really bring out the peculiar nature of this track as some of them are not quite the typical synth sounds one usually hears.
Overall, this was a pretty good track. It has interesting lyrics, catchy vocals, and atypical, but interesting synth elements going on. It get’s a thumbs up from me.
