OK you got me, not even a trace of the Ruralism aesthetic here. Just a occasional return to my first love. As a child I was really excited by synthpop, it was new and it was exciting. When I first started writing and recording my own music it was synthpop. It took a very long time before I felt my songs where good enough to share and by that time this mode of music had sort of become unpopular. But fortunately there was still an audience and after a few tracks being successfully included on compilations the release of my album The All Clear was made possible.
