Although I listened to a variety of music while writing STATION, Synthwave easily dominated my playlists and was the inspiration for many aspects of the novel, including the overall aesthetic of the city. Below are the songs that had a profound impact on my writing, organized into the chapters that they best represent. To the right, you will find the entire Spotify playlist to ease the listening experience. A special shoutout to The Midnight, Gunship, FM Attack, and FM-84, who not only goosed my creative backside, but also facilitated some rad solo trips across Thailand.
Finally, a big thank you to Diamond Cafe, the most exciting musical act that no one knows about. I would reward myself after successful days of writing by listening to Tristan's music on trips back home from the library. Treat yourself to his catalogue and let your mind wander into The Soiree Noire.
