Learning To Fly - Deep Sea Arcade

from the single Learning To Fly (2016)

Once upon a time, I saw A Flock Of Seagulls perform in a small NYC club.  While most of the crowd wanted to hear I Ran, which was all the rage at the time, I was there to hear Space Age Love Song.  For me, the song had something magical in the vibe that seemed to lift me off floor allowing me to float a few inches in the air.

When I first heard the single Learning To Fly by the psychedelic Sydney band Deep Sea Arcade, I had a similar sensation.

What is it that causes this?  Is it the way the synths bounce over the beat?  Is it the melodic vocal line?  Is there something in the subliminal bass groove?  The spaced out guitars?  All of the above?

And I wonder if the band understood that they were creating this sensation when naming the song.  I like to think so.

Anyhow, gives this tune a spin and give me a hand in figuring this one out.  Thanks.
