Describe what you want your music to do others?
For 80s kids like myself, I hope that the music transports them back to that feeling of innocence and wonder. Playing outdoors, building tree houses, trying to be a Goonie and wishing you could take a ride with Max, the spaceship from Flight of the Navigator. For people born in the 90s and 00s, I hope that the balance of nostalgic elements with a modern approach is a refreshing alternative to mainstream pop and electronic music today.
