kmxexii The Art of Youth reveals the root of retrowave: our collective nostalgia for a time before our cynicism, when the universe held us in wonder with its limitless potential. Perhaps Arcade High can rekindle that optimism. This album is drenched in a love of life and accentuated with chiptunes, gently weaving between outrun, dance, funk, and sheer romance. My favorite track is "Neon Strip", with a very cool hi-hat beat, but I also love the devotion in the lyrics of "Crush", sang by Maddie Ardillo. Favorite track: Neon Strip.

Jean-Paul DuQuette Way back in 2012, this was one of the first synthwave albums to really nail the smooth and super '80s retro soundtrack vibe. Kind of a classic now... Favorite track: Crush (Feat. Maddie Ardillo).

Track Name: Crush (Feat. Maddie Ardillo)
Break my hands
Boil my blood
Kill me in kindness
I'll pay you back in love
I'm the hit and run you never intended
But kill me in kindness and all of this is mended

Take my heart
Crush it into dust
Take me apart
Do what you must

Every thread twined into one
Kill me in kindness
Blot out my sun
Speak through the haze
See what I've seen
Kill me in kindness if you know what I mean

Take my heart
Crush it into dust
Take me apart
Do what you must
