Heat Wave EP

kmxexii A bright, upbeat EP for a hot summer day with Arcade High's usual chiptune spice. "Runaways" and "Coastline" are nice outrun in the sun, the latter with a bit of tropical flavor a la steel drums and even a bit of guitar work. "Coney Island" has a stronger chiptune sound and is just as danceable. The title track wins out as my favorite. The tropical beats and lovely vocal stylings of Morissa Trunzo make for a wonderful synthpop song. The warmth of innocence, as always, is highly appreciated. Favorite track: Heat Wave (ft. Morissa Trunzo).

Runaways 03:50
Living life through a dream, running wild and we’re running free when I let your drug take control and I can’t let you go Summer nights laying by your side, feel the heat and the mood’s just right when I feel your hand intertwined with mine I can’t open my eyes Taking shots driving fast ‘cause they tell us slow Speeding lights, city nights, with the top down low In my summer daze, you make my heart race, kissing like two teens in a heat wave Seeing life through a star, taking chances and we’re going far when I feel the heat take control and I won’t let this dream go Summer days making dreams come true, seeing stars when the moon shines through and I feel your lips growing close to mine, I let go and close my eyes Your love is ecstasy, and when we touch I’m feeling wild and free Your life is what I need, I want your arms embracing me
Coney Island 03:54
Coastline 04:25


With this EP, I wanted to create dancy, energized tracks,
with specific attention paid to tightening my production as much as possible.
