about

The fourth full-length Synthwave album by Dana Jean Phoenix created to take you to a time before life was complicated by all of the knowledge, stress, and hard won experience that you have now. Back when possibilities seemed endless because your world was colorfully enigmatic and very few doorways were shut to you. A time when you were in love, or just about to be. A time you can share today together, in the PixelDust.
