poisonremedy Melds Nina's more introspective and experimental side with their danceable synthpop and adds an epic flavour that shows how much this two piece are always moving forward in whatever they do. Wonderful track.

Andrey Vladimirov Very good! In terms of the atmosphere this track elusively reminds Timecop's1983 latest album, in particular Static (feat. The Midnight) and Back To You (feat. The Bad Dreamers). The guitar solo at 03:02 is awesome!

julesneonfawkes The first 16 bars alone are pure retro bliss. I can imagine this in a soundtrack to an action/romance movie from the '80s. Nina's voice is crystal clear in this, and Oscillian's synths are strong. Don't hesitate to add this to your synthwave collection. Hoping a video comes out!

lyrics

The Calm Before The Storm

You cross the line
In disguise
Now you’re standing all alone

You change your looks
Change your name
You’re still running on your own (You’re still running)

Looking back
It was all too clear like written on the wall

And it’s alright
But you fear the worst is yet to come along
This is…

The calm before the storm
(I surrender)
The calm before the storm
(I surrender)


For every step, every turn,
There are shadows standing tall
Broken promises
Something’s waiting in the sky

Looking back
It was all too clear like written on the wall

And it’s alright
But you fear the worst is yet to come along
This is…

The calm before the storm
(I surrender)
The calm before the storm
(I surrender)


How did it come to this?
 Why am I always on the run from you?
Is this reality?
 We have forever lost the truth of our despair
There is no doubt that we

Should gather strength and be prepared for what’s to come

It seems I’m losing you
And the only place that I can breathe again
Is in in your arms


The calm before the storm
(I surrender)
The calm before the storm
(I surrender)
