Neon Highway

...or what happens when I try to make some synthwave! I love that genre and a lot of its side/sub-genres but I feel like I can't reproduce it and end up with my own usual sauce. I try to catch the ingredients from the original and use them in my own recipe but somehow it doesn't take.
Anyway, regardless of what genre it is, it still feels energetic and I liked making it, so it's still win, right?

I think you nail it pretty much, also I've found that you never quite copy the vibe it's your own style that enhances it. I really like this, core melody is great and the synth line that runs throughout really captures the vibe. This is definitely a win

It's nice, definitely not quite synthwave, the guitar strums are too low and the bass isn't nearly fat enough, but it's really nice how you picked specific things and turned it into, let's call it, neonwave.
