Neon-Noir; A synthwave story

Over the past week i have released 3 separate tracks, however they have all been around the same style and theme and accidentally have become a neon-noir post-apocalyptic story!

So here is each track and the bit of back-story for each one;

The ruins of a once vibrant city, surrounded by the only defense from the toxic out-lands. The Wall.

Arriving in the town ablaze with violence and gunshot, our protagonist takes refuse in a run down Cathedral. Little does he know that this is the source of the mayhem, and now he has to fight to survive.

Our Neon-noir protagonist; an soldier of fortune who returns home to rescue his ex-girlfriend who has been kidnapped by the leader of a biker gang. Nothing can hold them apart.

Is this real life or am i 'Tangerine Dream'ing??

Tangerine Dream are one of the founding artists of Synthwave and so as a homage to them i have created a remix of their track 'Canyon Voices'. My version is completely different to the original and what i have tried to do is give it a beefed up heavier/darker vibe complete with a few retrospective 80s synthesizers.

So here is the link to the track on Soundcloud;

And here is the link to a simple music video i have knocked together to go with the remix;

Let me know if you liked the track and stay tuned for more Synthwave creations soon!
