Review: "Anyway (feat. RuthAnne)" - Cash Cash

These days it feels like those sappy, kissing in the rain relationships are closed off in tight-sealed glass shields, only for people to look at and not touch. Those glass shields are usually movies and books, outlets that people use to escape reality in order to fill their desolate romantic gap. So, when you do find someone who is just like Noah from “The Notebook” or Ally from “A Star is Born,” it feels liberating. Cash Cash co-wrote their wonderstruck electronic song, “Anyway” featuring RuthAnne, relishing on the feeling of finding someone who loves you despite your flaws; something that is sadly rare in today’s dating culture. The heartfelt synth-pop song is about finally breaking through the glass shield and taking what is rightfully theirs: unconditional love. No matter your company and situation, “Anyway” is the perfect track to dance the night away to on a lit-up cubed floor.

Magically optimistic, “Anyway” is heavily saturated in synths, beaming up the technicolor of both the track and the lyrics. Wholly romantic, the catchy pre-chorus sets up the stage, “Seeing through your eyes/Making me feel like that all my wrongs/ They might be right,” preparing for the triumphant chorus, “No matter what I do or say/ You love me anyway/And every part I wanna change/ You love me all the same.” RuthAnne has the perfect rich vocals to make the lyrics soar with the music, allowing the listener to look through rose-colored glasses. Cash Cash also showcases their impressive production skills, transforming the song into a world of bursting color.

Forming in Roseland New Jersey, Cash Cash is a high-energy EDM band that first began with friends, Jean Paul Makhlouf and Samuel Frisch. Around 2007, Jean Paul’s brother Alex joined the group, establishing the group to a solid three. Throughout that year they began working on demos and creating rough cuts, while landing on the name Cash Cash and signing with Universal only a year later. After building a loyal fanbase from their 2008 album, “Take It to the Floor,” and their 2012 album, “The Beat Goes On,” they began spreading their wings slowly through hits. Their single, “Take Me Home,” pushed them to take flight in 2016 and they have remained global favorites since. Over the years, Cash Cash has collaborated with a plethora of well-known artists like Julia Michaels, Wiz Khalifa and Fitz & the Tantrums. Now, they are back to business releasing their newest single, “Anyway,” the first since their 2021 album, “Say It Like You Feel It”; a promise to fans that new music is on the way.
