You are standing alone in a wide and open space, which could be where the sand meets the ocean or a lush green field. The fresh air is glorious and soothing to your body as you inhale and exhale the atmosphere and think of the busy week you have experienced. Suddenly you think back to months or even years you spent closely with a friend or lover that you may have drifted away from due to timing or other personal factors. You don’t have any ill feelings towards them and you wonder if they are doing well since you last saw them. A song that sums up this feeling of looking back fondly is At 1980’s song ‘Still on Your Side’.
This track features on the duo’s second album Late Night Calls via NewRetroWave, which is filled with eminent anthemic tracks that you can sing along to in the shower, on your way to work or even on your next road trip. Why do we suggest these settings as ideal places to listen to the album you may wonder? Each track will possibly have you singing at the top of your lungs thanks to the album’s nostalgic vibe, we warned you.

‘Still on Your Side’ is one of the tracks that speak about a lost connection. Each track on this entire album carries an aspect of relationships and their many intricacies, ‘Still on your Side is no different with its sincerity and lingering and endearing sentimentality. The shimmering track ‘California Nights’ will have you daydreaming about your next trip to the beach with your dearest mates and just enjoying your youth and carefree days. ‘Caroline’ will have you wanting to find someone by that name, so you can serenade them outside their bedroom window in the rain like those classic ‘80s chick flicks. ‘Nothing Left To Say’ will have you planning your first flash mob at your local cafe. There is definitely a song for every personality on this album, by the sounds of it.
