I think this is my fave Argentina track, has the widescreen shimmer and scope of a big production, but the slow pace allows those human touches to creep through. Pocket epic synthpop.

Had me hooked instantly. You pull this off so well and the best thing is you show you can do it on more than one song. So excited about what's ahead for you dude.
