At 1980 feat Dana Jean Phoenix (A Thousand Lives - Single)

Robert: This is truly an entry from the world, the band At 1980 is composed by a duo, one is from Spain and the other is from the UK and they are currently based in Madrid, Spain. They usually change vocalists for their songs and in this case, they work with Canadian singer Dana Jean Phoenix whose voice actually gives me Stevie Nicks vibes. They belong to the Synthwave movement and this genre is actually something that exists for many years already, but for some reason in the last couple of years is when it has become something very popular I think thanks to The Weeknd. Retro sounds is not everyone's cup of tea in this contest, however, A Thousand Lives doesn't sound ''forced'' I think it has a sound that it actually comes from the '80s, I think is very organic and it makes it natural. I hope you guys like it, and hear what I hear in this song which takes me to a very pleasant place. By the way, I hat to contact one of the band members (Adrian Quesada) directly to get their bio as they are not on Wikipedia, he was very kind in providing me a link to an interview they did that includes their information.
