‘Neon Lines’ is a brand new synthwave collaboration for 2021, via 1981, between Costa Rican composer/producer Walter Alienson, British singer-songwriter/remixer Minute Taker (Erasure, Yazoo), & US mixing engineer Matt Aslanian (Jessie Frye, Timecop1983). After meeting in an online synthwave fan group, they joined forces remotely to create this irresistibly nostalgic synth-pop song that explores how the retrowave movement brings like-minded people from all over the world together in their shared love of all things 80s... “we dream tonight in neon lines”.


Neon Lines

Like waking up in a dream
The world is strange
If it’s the future I see
I think I lost my way

(I know you)
And something tells me that you
(feel it too)
Oh you feel the same
Let’s hit the highway tonight
Drive into horizon shapes

(we’ll find our way home)

We dream tonight
In neon lines
And I feel alive
When I’m with you

(watch those lines)
With all the colours restored
(light the sky)
So bright they bleed
We can’t help longing for more
We were born too late it seems

(We live our lives on rewind)

We dream tonight
In neon lines
I feel alive
When I with you

Neon lines
Stretching out before us
Outlining every part of you and me

And every shape on the horizon
Bleeding out into the night sky
Guiding us home

Like waking up from a dream
We’ve found our place

We dream tonight
In neon lines
Beaming bright
Into the night
And I feel alive
In neon lines
I feel alive
When I’m with you
