Neo Retros zdobywcami Nagrody Publiczności i Nagrody Jury TOP Trendy Festiwal 2011.

The High-rise in the Sunshine is the debut single of Neo Retros. The song gives a wonderful insight into the neo-retro concept -- effortlessly amalgamating modern rhythmic sounds and electronics with classical song structure and supposedly outdated instruments - in this case the harpsichord.The High-rise in the Sunshine touches the listener, not only through its plaintive vocals, but also the little splashes of sunshine and tension that one can detect in its instrumentation. The inspiration for the song required two simple ingredients: a monstrous high-rise tower block, and the forever changing weather.

Their footprints in skylines
And lifelines decay
A honeymoon ended
And the sky's bullet grey

The high-rise in the sunshine
And cries in the daytime
Get carried away
The high-rise in the sunshine
And cries in the daytime
Get carried away, away

My mind is on preset
As I'm told I'm someone
Maybe I'll fly like a missile
Or sink like the Sun

The high-rise in the sunshine
And cries in the daytime....
