"Space March, an electronic music artist from Australia, released his newest single 'Tokyo' a geo romantic song (as he refers to it) that is packed with a lot of synthwave/retrowave vibes in a strong classic synthpop base.
The production is on point offering an old school general feel, specially reminding of artists such as The Human League & Erasure in the mid 80's and manages to blend in a subtle but noticeable modern sound.
The melodies are sweet and immersive with the synths carefully programmed for dream inducing sounds and arppegiated orbital layers.
The vocals are perfect for this type of track, it communicates a calm and gorgeous romantic ambience wich is basically what this song is all about.
The final production is clean, well mixed and enough dynamic that feels naturally shine.
This is a synthwave song that achieves still a cool fusion with classic synthpop, it's a nice balance, so please follow Space March, add it to your classic & modern electronic music collection!"

‘Tokyo’ is the geo-romantic Space March song for 2019. The track will appear on the forthcoming seventh Space March album, due for release in 2020.
The building depicted in the cover art is the convention centre – Tokyo Big Sight, opened in 1996. It features four inverted pyramids, possessing a kind of austere futurism, which is in stark contrast to the delicate beauty of the music.
