NeonFlashDrive’s ‘Dark City’


Here’s the new tune from UK SynthWave producer NeonFlashDrive, a brooding slice of electronic soundtrack work inspired by the 1987 animé Wicked City. Even though Wicked City is pretty horror based, what NeonFlashDrive has done with this tune is capture the vibe of what was, in our opinion, the golden age of Cyberpunk animé. This track could have quite as easily been influenced by Bubblegum Crisis, Appleseed, Armitage III, Akira or Ghost In The Shell.

Built around ominous synth pad that immediately install a dark future mood, NeonFlashDrive soon takes us on a sonic journey through a neon soaked dystopia with Dark City. With nods to Italo and SynthPop in it’s driving arpeggios, digital bass and haunting, ringing, melodies. Don’t think it’s all mysterious soundtrack stuff, this track’s got a groove to it too!
