It's good and well done.
But since you asked for comments...!
You got the "retro" mood I assume you wanted, it's working great!
The kick could be layered, or maybe you could put some variations (add a layer every two other kicks).
00:56 (and 1:48) the noise sweep is either too much or too cheap. It look too much like a "tool" you need for a transition between parts. Maybe a reverse sweep instead? Or longer? Or not at all?
The two parts of the track are too differents. Maybe you shoud not let go the rythmic/bl synth you have from the beginning (starting at 0:10)?
And... work on your title! :)
Congrats

Liked and left a couple of comments. Pinkbox's feedback is pretty much on the mark so wont add any critique.

Those strings are a little too upfront / too bright. I always think more ppl should try recording vocals as it makes demos become songs :)

Thanks and agreed, Vocals make a huge difference and add a new frequency range to the mix.
