As I put on Darkways' 'Young Again', I was immediately transported to the dark and romantic soundscapes of the 80s. The synths sound almost like they were plucked right out of that era, yet the song somehow feels fresh and contemporary. It's an impressive feat that Darkways has managed to capture the essence of the genre so well.
The beat is infectious and had me tapping my feet right from the start. It's hard not to dance along to the rhythm, even though the mood of the song is quite sad. The harmonies are beautifully layered and add to the melancholic feeling of the track. It's a perfect balance of danceability and emotion.
'Young Again' is taken from the EP 'Neon Lights', which is a collection of five tracks that showcase Darkways' talents as a synthwave artist. The title and artwork may seem cliché, but the music speaks for itself. Each track is well-crafted and takes you on a journey through the retro-futuristic and dark wave touched world of Darkways.
