With the beginning of a new month, comes new, exciting opportunities – but often, the stress of everyday life follows and, it’s not exactly pleasant. However, it’s important to find a balance and music is so vital in affecting our moods. A great way to start off a new month is with some upbeat, radiant tracks that leave us grinning with joy (and dancing around in our living rooms.) The thought of glowing, carefree dance-y tracks always brings a feelings of 80’s inspired pop. Synthwave is the perfect representation of retro fun crafted in a modern environment, and definitely a mood lifter.
