Neontenic – Set Me Free (Feat. Lisa Kant)

Neontenic - Set Me FreeUnfortunately the song ‘Set Me Free (Feat. Lisa Kant)’ performed by the Italian band ‘Neontenic’ has no connection to the Depeche Mode 1984s same-titled song. But probably a synthwave cover version was just a wishful thinking.

The purple artwork of a futuristic metropolis visually suggests the music genre without much skill. Yes, it is synthwave, but with the genre twist of 80s Italo Disco. Those who remember Italian bands and artists of the 80s like ‘Righeira’, ‘Sabrina’, ‘Fancy’ or ‘Den Harrow’ know how interesting such a mix can sound. In any case, I am fully convinced. The song cleverly uses classic elements and transforms them into something fresh and new.

Among other great bands also this track is part of our Spotify playlist ‘Synth Pop Newcomers 2021‘.

Lyrics:

There will be times you’ll look as sharp as never ever before
There will be times you’ll look as cool as never ever before
When you walk in to my life
When you step right through the rain
You might meet days as dazed as blue as never ever before

Look at me set me free
Longing to believe /for infinity
Set me free look at me
Tough walk, isn’t it?

There will be days you’ll cry as loud as never ever before
There will be nights you’ll move divine like never ever before
When you crash on through the signs
When you jump right through the pain
You might meet wraiths as crazed as blue as never ever before

Look at me set me free
Longing to believe /for infinity
Set me free look at me
Tough walk, isn’t it?

My machine is my dream
In my head circuit’s red

Look at me set me free
Longing to believe /for infinity
Set me free look at me
Tough walk, isn’t it?

You never never
You never ever before
