There’s a very certain sort of sickly sweet sentiment in teen movies from the 80’s that makes so many of those movies timelessly lovable. Films like 16 Candles and The Breakfast Club never seem to get old. If you ask me it’s because we’re all chasing the feeling of being young and in love. This is exactly the rose-tinted feeling New York artist, Nuns Honey, has articulated in his latest single “Colors and Shapes”.

The song comes from the solo artist— Tim Goodwin’s, forthcoming debut album Steep Action (Out 4/5). Wistful, sparking synths drive the track with shimmering sunny guitars evoke romantic rose-tinted images of the summer that is yet to come. It’s almost as if the song comes to us in a time capsule. It surely would have made perfect sense alongside Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” and Depeche Mode’s “Stripped” in Say Anything.

We have your first listen of “Colors and Shapes” below.
