Give up, because surrender is your only hope.

Fig. VI.

This is the first step you will take in outwardly acknowledging your surrender. Your unwavering surrender to sweeping bangs or feathered hair. Your total acceptance of blazers with the sleeves drawn up to the elbows over pastel shirts. Perhaps your newly obedient to safety pins folding boot cut black jeans into a subtle wrap around your ankles.

Regardless, you’ve come here to shake your ass and give yourself over to these sexy 80’s jams.

Give up, because surrender is your only hope.

This is a new mixed tape full of New Wave gems ordered up & special made for you and yours.
