January 6, 2022 — Everyone loves to use the New Year as a reason to look forward and be hopeful. We’re a little different. We like to use it as an opportunity to reflect on the 365 days we just survived through. And those days would have been quite a bit longer if not for the upbeat, energetic, electrifying, and oft-eerie sounds of synth. New retrowave favorites, grim darkwave gems, and so much more helped fuel 2021 and provided us with sounds that helped us usher in the New Year.
