“‘Night Riders’ by Fashion Invasion, Last Day Deaf’s exclusive track premiere, is a perfectly balanced synth pop gem. John Paul Byram on guest vocals is undertaking that dificult task to unleash pathos with his expressive performance, while at the same time never overshadowing the gentle synth leads and lush melody line.”
This is what we wrote about Fashion Invasion‘s exclusive on Last Day Deaf ‘Night Riders‘ exactly 1 month ago, and we feel blessed opening this new year (and decade) with another premier by the artist and his sublime track ‘Something On My Mind‘. John Paul Byram‘s vocal performance is once again more than an ideal fit, matching perfectly with the warm synths and the delicate 80s melodies. Dance to the future now!
