Musically this project stands for melancholic dark pop arrangements led by melodic vintage synth lines mixed with the electropop voice of Damasius. The album was mixed and mastered by renowned Italian synthwave artist and producer Vincenzo Salvia and also features noticeable guest appearances by Marthe Borge-Lunde Pfirrmann (from the wonderful Lightshifters project), adding her great voice on two songs while Chris Young (Midnight Danger) contributes with a guitar solo.
The album will be available on CD (pre-orders are accepted now via Alfa Matrix) and as download (Bandcamp pre-orders are already accepted with an immediate download of 2 tracks).
