Nice to hear that AOR had a big influence on someone that grew up past the 80's music scene.
Good writing and the 80's movies someone is putting the songs to really helps bring the songs out.
I went through a bunch of the synthwave songs on this site, not a genre I ever looked at much.
Sounds like some decent stuff there, might have to pay more attention to it.

At 1980 are a synthwave due cosisting of Adrian Quesada Michelena from Spain and Josh Dally from England. It started out as a personal project for Adrian who was born in 1980, hence the name. He contacted Josh for a vocal performance on a more or less finished track at the time and then they worked together on another track this time cowriting it and voila At 1980 as a duo was born. The AOR influence you hear comes from the fact Adrian is a big fan of melodic rock.
