Mr.Websta Do you want a trip back to the 80's? Do you want contemporary retro future synth-pop? Do you want some magic moments? Do you want calling the stars while driving along the coastline of the french riviera? You want something powerfull and soft at the same time? Do you want one of the most beautiful synth release this year? Yes you're right. This album is all you need and much more. Favorite track: Solace.

captfalafel I only stumbled across New Arcades recently despite enjoying the Synthwave genre immensely.
Returning Home is highly recommended for anyone looking for punchy 80s-esque electric tunes.
UK Synthwave is making waves. Favorite track: Clean Break.
𝙍𝙊𝘽𝘽𝙄𝙀𝙈𝙐𝙎𝙋𝙍𝙄𝙈𝙀 Returning Home can do many things, this album ties your heart into a knot. I don't know what else to say, it hit me as I listened to it. Sure it won't leave your ears after listening to it, but there is also something more, more lasting. It holds onto you, your heart and it's not going to let go of it. Listen to this album and buy it! Favorite track: All I See.

Track Name: Into The Unknown
I watch the city it slowly lights up the night
lost memories are what im trying to find
with neon skies above us again
all we have is love, now i know what you meant

Take me with you
I cant do this alone
So far from home
We could maybe pull through
so far away and alone
And then we can go, into the unknown

You need to know that i'm on my way back to you
I was on my own but ill be seeing you soon
We're in the fallout, so ill try finding my way
its getting dark now you know things wont be the same
Track Name: If Only You Could See
Track Name: Further
I’ve stayed awake all night

Watching the stars

I need to catch my breath

And find where you are

It’s not about the distance

Or how long it takes

Nothing now can break us

All i hear is your name

I can see for miles.... I watched you disappear.

I’ve been here a while

But it’s not so clear

If this Will pull us together,

Or tear us apart

I wanted forever,

Do you remember the start?

I’m drifting further away and I’m reaching for you...

You’re slipping further again, and you’re fading from view....

I’m drifting further away and I’m reaching for you...

You’re slipping further again now you’re fading from view.

So I’m waiting on a sign....

And counting down the time...

So I’ll wait until I find

A way to make this right
Track Name: Now And Forever
We’re running in the rain,

I’m right behind you

And I’m calling your name

I’m Waiting on a sunrise

So believe

That we’re not too late

So Fight through the pain

Just remember To forget where we were yesterday

I know we’ve got tomorrow,

We’re gonna be In a better place

And When the sunlight fades away.

Into the night, we can escape.

We can make it together,

Holding on to what we have left

So now and forever

We’ll keep moving on, until the end.
Track Name: Another Night
I’m on the outside,

And I’m looking in.

I think I’ll pick another night,

To start again.

Ive got a lot on my mind

Don’t know where I’ve been.

So I’ll keep looking for a light,

So can we begin...

I keep seeing you when you’re not there, You’re not leaving cause you’re stuck in my head.

I keep thinking about what you said,

‘Let go....let go and forget....’

And I feel stronger,

Than in recent days.

But they’re getting longer.

And There’s nothing left to take...

I can never decide

What’s going on in my head

And now I can’t think straight

So I’ll look for you instead....
Track Name: Clean Break
She said “I’ll meet you there...

I’m gonna wait for you”

And I’m so unprepared

But You know what to do...

We could go anytime you want to

Anywhere, and you can choose

Just tell me when you’re ready to leave...

Cause You wanna clean break

And I said I’ll find a way

I’ve got a feeling... I’ll do whatever it takes

I’ll be right here beside you...

I’ll lie if you want me to.

But I need to know, I need to know tonight.

I look in your eyes

As you take my hand

We’re Nearly out of time...

I know you understand
Track Name: All I See
Follow me down here. Nobody has to know

And We’ll be where we want to be, yeah nobody has to know

I want you to stay, I don’t wanna watch you go

I’m figuring out why, everything must end.

Now I see, what I want to see, but everything does end.

I wanted to stay, But I had to watch you go

You know I’m by your side

You know you’re all I see.

And though there’s pain inside

You’re still the air that I breathe
Track Name: Returning Home
Come back

I need to see you again

Come back

Will you be home again?
