Chill to Wash Park’s New 80’s-Inspired Single “There’s Still Time”

Denver-based indie rock Wash Park swings into August with a new, upbeat single: “There’s Still Time.” Debuting with the single “My Best” this year, Wash Park is reaching new heights in their third single this year while taking inspiration from a classic decade for music: the 80’s. 

Wash Park’s sole member, otherwise known as Keaton Dean, wrote, recorded, produced, and mixed the entire song in his bedroom studio in Denver, CO. The 22-year-old debuted this year with his solo project, and continues to tell stories and bring his own twists to the indie pop genre. 

With cool vocals, light and airy synth sounds, and a magnetic electric guitar solo, the single combines the best of 80’s music and modern indie pop. The track itself encourages listeners to relax and slow down, because there will always be more time to discover who you are. There’s no rush, just enjoy what life has in store for you now. 

I never seem to get it right

But I’m willing to try again

What if I miss my time?

What if I miss my chance? 

“There’s Still Time” is the ultimate dream pop summer anthem and is the perfect add to your driving playlists. 

Fans of Harry Styles, The 1975, and Tame Impala should check out Wash Park’s new single, “There’s Still Time,” along with more exciting new music on our Alchemical Multigenre Mixdown playlist on Spotify.

Stay Afloat with Soft Punch — Above Water

Soft Punch, aka Rye Thomas, of Washington D.C. released his debut album, Above Water on September 15th, after years of working on it.
The album is a labor of love that Soft Punch, the stage name of Rye Thomas, has been working on for years since the diagnosis of his chronic illness. It takes you through the highs and lows, mourning the freedom lost, and celebrating the things that he is grateful for in his day to day life. I had the opportunity to sit down and talk to him about his process of writing the album.

The titles of albums are the first thing that an artist sees. That, and the artist’s name. When I first heard the name ‘Soft Punch’, I was intrigued. It was gentle but intentional. “I don’t know if I had a specific ‘A-ha, Lightbulb’ moment, but I was interested in words that sound good together and have multiple meanings,” Thomas said. “It’s a gentle hit, and a nonalcoholic punch. It’s the image of something harsh and something soft is interesting to me. I think I lucked out.”
