"Following in the same vein as his debut single 'Criminal', electro alternative darkpop and aggro tech artist Zeon released his second single 'Touch My Screen', another powerful track yet more conservative sounding than aggressive compared to the previous release, and this is a benefit for the artist's presentation as it shows a diverse offering in terms of vibes and mood, and yet still a similar perception of his overall music proposal from the beginning.
It's clear that Zeon undoubtedly achieves top quality music production and wants to share a compelling and consistent batch of releases that are related to each other but with enough craft on each to give them their own sonic and melodic personalities.
The efx on his vocals are now a recognizable treat that enhance his texture and performance, the synth patches, melodies and beats, all get a near perfect polish, and tough his final production leans towards aggresive tones still mantains a tonal balance that is unpretentious and very natural.
We highly recommend Zeon for all electro music ocassions but specially for moments when you may feel you need an adrenaline injection!"

SYW Overall SCORE:
INSIDE THE TRACK: [artist's commentary]
The way we communicate is different now. But the hard hit of heartbreak has always stayed the same. This song is about that feeling we experience today, through our screens.
We fall in and out of love through our screens. How else do people connect nowadays? So I thought of what we do. We autocorrect our expressions and real feelings. We're scared to share the truth. We binge movies and series like we binge relationships. One after the other to get to the good parts. We put our feelings on airplane mode. We contain them and they destroy us, overflowing when we turn the reception back on. But we don't care, we just touch our screen again, repeating the cycle.
This song is also a depiction of how I’ve experienced love. I’ve always encountered a lot of pain–as if it were the only way to live in love. That’s why I say "Touch My Screen" at the end. It’s this bad behavior, this screen fixation, this love and hurt addiction that I go back to. It’s damaging, but I can’t control it.
