After years of playing guitar in rock bands, Seattle, WA., artist Logan Johnson decided enough was enough, and it was time to follow the 1980’s synthwave dream. The result is Lonely City and new single ‘Johnny’, 3’45” of synthrock epic, heavily reverb-soaked drums, rolling bassline and synth lines, and a catchy, storytelling vocal line.
And here we go, finally, the story of Cobra Kai set to music, 1980’s action hero getting the full Lonely City treatment. It’s a perfect mash up of inspiration and appreciation, the official lyric video adding to the whole ‘Tron’-era aesthetic with rolling neon and Street Fighter-esque graphics.
