Myrddin R Emrys Believer is such a good album. I've put it on repeat a few times while having to drive for several hours and it's been so enjoyable.
Great Music/Art.!

Adam Clarke One of my favourite Synthwave albums from 2021 so far. I can't get the song 'Recognise' out of my head! Favorite track: Recognise.

I Am Jack's Bandcamp I love this whole album! from front to back this is exactly what Synthwave is!
Jean-Paul DuQuette

Jean-Paul DuQuette Take a heaping helping of Christine and the Queens, a smidgen of Chromeo and smother it all in exhilarating late '80s synths, and you've got Believer. If you like female-fronted retrowave like Oceanside85, Jessie Frye and Nina, you're going to absolutely love this. The remixes on the Deluxe Edition are uniformly great, too, so don't sleep on this version. Best synthwave album of 2021 so far. Favorite track: Stunning.

Nebitt This album has it all, wonderful synths recall the best of the 80s while still sounding relevant for today. While musically upbeat, the words convey the angsts of a failed relationship, we can all relate to the feelings of loss and the hope that love will come again. Despite this, there’s an overall feeling of optimism, helped by the nature of the music, which manages to be both emotional and danceable. The remixes are awesome. This album is so good my Little Mix loving kids love it too. Favorite track: Unable.

Stunning 03:19 video
No plan to get you out of my life I’m losing control I gotta shake you off You stole everything you could grab How could I be so So crazy in love And now, you cry cause I’m moving on Cause you know you’ve lost and I’ve let you go I’m fed up The moment has come I won’t come running You gave me nothing I won’t fall again (that was the last time) I know, yeah you were stunning I gave you something, now you’ll never let me go I finally got you out of my life I’m taking control And I am moving on And now, you cry cause I’m moving on Cause you know you’ve lost and I’ve let you go I’m fed up The moment has come I won’t come running You gave me nothing I won’t fall again (that was the last time) I know, yeah you were stunning I gave you something, now you’ll never let me go I won’t come running (I won't) To you again (I won't) You gave me something but that was back then I won’t come running You gave me nothing I won’t fall again No I won't come running, no no no

We Had Magic 03:20
I can’t imagine A life without you no oh no Yes we had magic At least that’s what most people thought All I do is write and all I do is call my friends But do they even know that…. I can’t really let you go And I don’t wanna think about it anymore We could have seen the world But you don’t love me anymore I can’t pretend that it didn’t happen no oh no (it did happen) Yeah it was tragic You’re in love with someone I know All I do is write and all I do is call my friends But do they even know that…. I can’t really let you go And I don’t wanna think about it anymore We could have seen the world But you don’t love me anymore Doesn’t matter anyway, I wanted love, but it’s ok Now I see that this is over I can’t really let you go And I don’t wanna think about it anymore I can’t really let you go And I don’t wanna think about it anymore We could have seen the world But you don’t love me anymore

True 04:01 video
Are you gonna come back in the morning? And reconcile I don’t like the way you left, No warning And teary eyed I know we had something Tell me was it all my fault Now we’re done You never loved me, that you can’t deny (You never loved me, no) You were just playing all along, Trying to get the most of me, but why? (You never loved me, no) You know it’s true The minute you felt the need you started new (You never loved me, no) It’s all about you You don’t really care for other people’s hearts (You never loved me, no) Now I realise I was ignoring The obvious signs (I think I was, I really was) Maybe I should have seen where you were going He was your type I know we had something Tell me was it all my fault Now we’re done You never loved me, that you can’t deny (You never loved me, no) You were just playing all along, Trying to get the most of me, but why? (You never loved me, no) You know it’s true The minute you felt the need you started new (You never loved me, no) It’s all about you You don’t really care for other people’s hearts (You never loved me, no) I know I will survive This feeling will subside (it will be over soon) It still hurts that you were The one that crossed the line You never loved me, that you can’t deny (You never loved me, no) You were just playing all along, Trying to get the most of me, but why? (You never loved me, no) You know it’s true The minute you felt the need you started new (You never loved me, no) It’s all about you You don’t really care for other people’s hearts (You never loved me, no)

Believer 03:18
You were a deceiver, I was a believer I could never think you’d go with someone else (What a fool) Even when you lied you were so revealing Trusted and played your game for so long (So long) Taught me What it feels to be alone Alone Oh no, it’s done You’re gone And I just gotta mend the pieces of my heart Oh, you’ve known All along Now I just need to realise you’re not the one I could not believe it when I found out you were Playing lovers with somebody else (What a fool) Our memories are fading You treated me so wrong (for so long) Taught me What it feels to be alone Alone Oh no, it’s done You’re gone And I just gotta mend the pieces of my heart Oh, you’ve known All along Now I just need to realise you’re not the one All that I could do was build a wall Waiting for my heart to become strong You were my world, my all And now I take the fall But every night I know That it was not my fault I will stand and take control And I will now reverse the roles I won’t be the victim anymore Cause I deserve to be loved Oh no, it’s done You’re gone And I just gotta mend the pieces of my heart Oh, you’ve known All along Now I just need to realise you’re not the one No, you’re not the one Now I just need to realise you’re not the one

The Cards 03:34
Undecided, wondering where to go from here Where I end up, I will decide and I won’t fear Always looking for some words that I can feel I can finally understand the cards I was dealt in this life I can almost start to see the stars Guiding me over to you To you, to you, to you All the roads lead back to you Undivided, I know you’re here far or near What we design is in our minds, I see it clear Always looking for that love that I can feel I can finally understand the cards I was dealt in this life I can almost start to see the stars Guiding me over to you To you, to you, to you All the roads lead back to you And I know that I can’t explain, but the more I give the more I get You keep guiding my every step The world keeps turning I may be alone but... I can finally understand the cards I was dealt in this life I can almost start to see the stars Guiding me over to you To you, to you, to you All the roads lead back to you
6.
Recognise 02:58
I just need a reason I don’t wanna run Come and be my reason I only need to look in your eyes Shall we head on the same direction? Shall we pretend this is forever? Every time that we’re together You give me something I don’t recognise It’s been too long And I don’t wanna have to analyse I don't wanna dream on Maybe I'll reach out I think we could be like Lovers in the longest nights Shall we head on the same direction? Shall we pretend this is forever? Every time that we’re together You give me something I don’t recognise It’s been too long And I don’t wanna have to analyse We do belong… together Every time that we’re together (you always give me something) Every time that we’re together (and I know I don’t feel so lost) Every time that we’re together I think we are better together (you give me something) I think we are better together (you give me something) You give me something
7.
You didn’t plan it Victim of circumstance You found a lover And now I’m left behind A mad fixation No way to hold you back So now I wait for Remorse or just a sign That you do care and that you do give a damn I watch you leave and I’m breaking deep inside I don’t know what to do How can I forget you? Why is it that you are always on my mind cause I can’t seem to shake you off out of my life and I know I can’t really make you love me So why is it that you are always, always on my mind So tell me darling Did you forget the past How much we built and How many plans we had I hear you lie and I’m breaking deep inside I don’t know what to do How can I forget you? Why is it that you are always on my mind cause I can’t seem to shake you off out of my life and I know I can’t really make you love me So why is it that you are always, always on my mind Why did I have to love you? I really hope you’re happy The more I think about it Guess there was always something Why did I have to love you? You know it’s all or nothing Your heart was always somewhere else Somewhere else Why is it that you are always on my mind cause I can’t seem to shake you off out of my life and I know I can’t really make you love me So why is it that you are always, always on my mind I can’t seem to shake you off No, no, can’t work it I can’t make you love me, no Why is it that you are always on my mind cause I can’t seem to shake you off out of my life

Emotional 03:22
Sure, I got your text Didn’t reply I couldn’t find the words to tell you how I feel Disposable Emotional Why do you keep insisting that we should be friends? I don’t wanna talk about it I don’t wanna think about you I need to wait until it all makes sense The lies you cannot hide The words you can’t take back You are redesigning All that we once ever had You keep denying keep rewriting all the facts I simply wonder Can we just go back in time? Strange, to call you my “ex” Doesn’t feel right Still can’t imagine that you’re with somebody else I don’t wanna talk about it I don’t wanna think about you I need to wait until it all makes sense The lies you cannot hide The words you can’t take back You are redesigning All that we once ever had You keep denying keep rewriting all the facts I simply wonder Can we just go back in time? Can we just go back in time? I simply wonder Can we just go back in time? We ran out of time I simply wonder can we just go back in time Can we just go back? I don’t wanna talk about it I don’t wanna think about you I need to wait until it all makes sense The lies you cannot hide The words you can’t take back You are redesigning All that we once ever had You keep denying keep rewriting all the facts I simply wonder Can we just go back in time?

Unable 04:16
I bare the weight I bare the sorrow inside Unable to feel Unable to love Waking always so uncomfortably numb Who will take me, who will love me as I am? I really hope that there is somebody Wanting to care and to love Standing beside me, knowing the answers The answers of love They keep telling me That I will survive But I’m unable to deal With the world outside So much pain, I don’t know who I’ve become Who will take me, who will love me as I am? I really hope that there is somebody Wanting to care and to love Standing beside me, knowing the answers The answers of love I bare the weight I bare the sorrow inside Unable to feel Unable to love Waking always so uncomfortably numb Who will take me, who will love me as I am? I really hope that there is somebody Wanting to care and to love Standing beside me, knowing the answers The answers of love I really hope that there is somebody To love
10.
It’s been so long and now You wanna make amends, it’s in your eyes Tell me how much time has passed? I don’t wanna lose the love we had And I don’t know what to say I don’t know where to start Tell me what it takes to get you back (No one told me) That it would hurt this much Deep in my heart Tell me, can we try and fix the past? (Let’s try again) What if we regret what we’ve denied I’ve been alone, and now I think I can see the sunset agonise And I don’t know what to say I don’t know where to start Tell me what it takes to get you back (No one told me) That it would hurt this much When we’re apart Tell me, how can we just change the past? (Let’s try again) How can we forget what we once had? Are they set in stone? The choices we make Can we ever go back? Tell me how much time We need to rewind Can we ever go back? Tell me what it takes to get you back (No one told me) That it would hurt this much Deep in my heart Tell me, can we try and fix the past? (Let’s try again) What if we regret what we’ve denied I don’t want to let you go But if I have to, then I’ll have to I don’t wanna lose the bond We once had Can we ever go back?
11.
Looking in the mirror again and again Wishing the reflection would tell me something I, I can't get a hold of myself I can't get outta this situation Walking in a straight line thinking about last time This time I said I would do this right Said I would never break this promise And now I'm back to counting on us We cannot be friends Cannot pretend That it makes sense We cannot be friends Cannot pretend That it makes sense 'Cause now I'm in it But I've been trying to find my way back for a minute Damn, I'm in it And I've been trying to find my way back for a minute Locking all the doors to my house I'm alone in my head But I wish you were in my bed Can't get a read on myself Gotta change this situation Something in the way that I felt when I woke up Told me that I shouldn't give in, give up hope Told me that I shouldn't fight what I felt Told me I should not let go 'cause We cannot be friends Cannot pretend That it makes sense 'Cause now I'm in it But I've been trying to find my way back for a minute Damn, I'm in it And I've been trying to find my way back for a minute 'Cause now I'm in it And I've been trying to find my way back for a minute And the rain keeps coming down along the ceiling And I can hear it But I can't feel it, oh Took me so long to fall Now I'm in it, now I'm in it 'Cause now I'm in it And I've been trying to find my way back for a minute And the rain keeps coming down along the ceiling And I can hear it But I can't feel it, oh
