axaforce Wonderful energy in ACY's cover of a Moroder classic "Chase". Loved it. Favorite track: Chase (Giorgio Moroder Cover).

SecretCatPolicy While Cut Class | Hall Pass | Mall Dash is a fine track, the thing that really needs attention here is Chase. It's a really, really good cover of a seminal foundational work, equally important as anything Carpenter did for what we now know as synthwave; for anyone doubting ACY, this and his other Moroder and Tangerine Dream covers should be a major part of his credentials. Favorite track: Chase (Giorgio Moroder Cover).

steven rainey Light and breezy, ACY takes you on a trip to a time when every day had a sense of wonder, and personal self-discovery day around every corner. John Hughes is the obvious touchstone, but let's be honest - even the director of 'The Breakfast Club' would have begged for a soundtrack like this. See you in detention. Favorite track: Cut Class | Hall Pass | Mall Dash.

Dimi Kaye Cut Class... definitely gives a taste of the junior high school experience, where everything is new and you need to figure your place in it. It has that excitement/nostalgia/urgency vibe going on that's on point. I'd love a full concept album of this theme. And the Chace cover is on point too. Favorite track: Cut Class | Hall Pass | Mall Dash.

about

The peal of a school bell ringing. The crash of a locker slamming shut. The linoleum-and-floor-polish smell of a school gym. The saccharine aroma of mall food court cookies. The stomach-churning excitement of the teenage experience.

This is what Cut Class | Hall Pass | Mall Dash is about. A track heavily inspired by the '80s high school movies of John Hughes and Cameron Crowe, but grounded in shared reality the world over.
