“Love Arcade” features female rapper Honey-B-Sweet and vocalist Justin J. Moore. A total of 80 arcade game titles prevalent in the 1980’s are referenced in the song and cleverly form the lyrics. It’s chock-full of metaphors and innuendo. The music video is currently in production (planning to be filmed in a retro arcade) which he's hoping to complete before the EP release.
“Activate” features vocalist Lexi Johnson. A music video and strong songwriting conveys the pain of one's past and emphasizes how one should activate and overcome the torment of psychological scars and resent; seen through a lens of K-Pop and Synthwave fusion. An 8-person K-Pop dance team was used.
The “Kool Nites” music video was inspired by a-Ha’s “Take on me”. A character named Aurora is the unexpected victim of a paranormal VHS tape, which transfers her from the real world and into a cartoon/anime/manga, cyberpunk-like world of the future. She must act instinctively to quickly find a solution to return to where she came from. Or was it all just a dream?
The EP has 3 primary songs “Love Arcade”, “Activate”, and “Kool Nites”, with each having their own music video. It also includes 2 exclusive remixes that completely re-imagine the “Activate” and “Kool Nites” songs.
