My favorite band is: a-ha
My favorite genres are: New Wave/New Romantic, Synthpop, Post-Punk, Goth-rock, Industrial, Indie rock/pop, Alt. Rock, Jangle pop, and Electronica
I dream in color, and am certifiably a New Romantic.
Synthesizers are my life.
As I am sometimes a horrifically lazy creature, though diligent in my work (how's that for a bit of an oxymoron?), I now have two demos in my collection. Fun. Because they're silly unfinished pieces (mostly because my singing needs to be re-done, and production needs to be better), I've posted them at the bottom of my playlist. But they're there nonetheless, waiting to be completed... eventually.
Also, I've got lyrics:
Inspired by a line of dialogue in a documentary about Soft Cell (and New Romantics in general), I created the song The Young Romantics. I sampled it as well, and added it towards the end of the song. I thought it brought everything together very well. So, here's the lyrics to it. I think they paint a decent picture of New Romantics; I was staring at the peculiar fashions and the clash of dark art and glittering, material optimism.

If my accented, soft-sung electropop is found to be hard to understand, I've got lyrics to post. In my own opinion, mumbling into the microphone would probably have yielded the same result. Singing too loudly would have awoken friends and family, and that would have been unfortunate for them... listening to me caterwaul at three in the morning. :)
And it's like the moon fell
From the skies
And landed in your eyes
And now the stars wait
