about

Essenger brings his remarkable blend of influences to a shadowy new synthwave track with "After Dark." Pulling elements from contemporary EDM and weaving them into a darkened retro synthscape led by Essenger’s distinctive vocal style, the song tells a story of distance and longing through its cinematic composition. The cutting-edge track is available now from independent synthwave label FiXT Neon.

"After Dark" is the first single and title track from Essenger’s upcoming full-length album, After Dark. The recording includes notable collaborators and puts Essenger’s creative versatility and production skills on display with a full and diverse tracklist. The complete album is scheduled for release in early 2020.

Track Name: After Dark
City fog
Somewhere in those lights you’re on your phone
I should have known
Saw you called
Wonder why you try
I’m still alone
You’re on your own

Disconnected
Don’t know why we fell apart
The feeling sets in
But only after dark
But only after dark

(But only after dark)
(But only after dark)
(But only after dark)

Hollow shell
Look me in the eyes and see I’m numb
I’ve come undone
Let me go
I’m sorry that I can’t be what you want
My heart is gone

Disconnected
Don’t know why we fell apart
The feeling sets in
But only after dark
But only after dark

(But only after dark)
(But only after dark)

But only after dark
