New The Neon City: “Sunset Drive”

Osaka-born dream-pop-maker The Neon City shares a lot of demos online, so it’s nice to see her drop one without that word, hinting that this is more solid than the presumed sketches she’s posted before. “Sunset Drive” is a bit of a throwback tune, built around some of the brightest synthesizer notes she’s laid down on a track yet. The core of the song, though, remains the distance between her voice and the smudged music — her singing is obscured, practically covered in a cloud while the neon-bright melody goes right to the front (and it’s worth noting, it’s a catchy little melody). It works though, driving home the haziness of the song. Listen above.
