""'Illuminate' it's an electro pop song that incorporates a fine modern mixture of synthwave, the production feels top notch on this one, the strong and beautiful vocals evoke an emotional mood that blend hope and desperation and at the end a powerful message. 'Farewell, Sunrise' (interesting band name by the way) are the italian modern electro pop you are looking for, please do yourself a favour, don't miss this""

INSIDE THE TRACK: [artist's commentary]
Illuminate is the second single by italian electro-pop / synthwave duo Farewell, Sunrise.
The retrowave inspired instrumental, composed by producer Federico Ascari, creates a nostalgic vibe through the use of side-chained gritty bass and synths, dreamy pads and leads, and a strong beat. Farewell, Sunrise likes to play with genres to create a new sound: incorporating elements of modern electro pop such as song structure, transitions, beats and production effects, and emo / pop punk vocal melodies and character.

The band also makes heavy use of vocal harmonies and effects, such as the vocoder-drenched vocals the song starts with.
Singer Gabriele Catoni says: “Illuminate is the story of a lost love.
A man walks alone in the city at night "chasing ghosts", remembering and thinking about all the memories from past, happier days”.
