My natural state is vegetative but this track has instilled some foreign desire to be absurdly active. 'How?!' is begging to be used as the choice music for a Go-Pro compilation of backflips off of rope swings into a lake, pulsing music festival crowds, mountain biking, fireworks, and summer love. I probably won't participate in any of those activities but it was nice to feel like I might for the duration of the song. If you (or someone you know) are predisposed to activity that takes place outside the comfort of air conditioning, please test my theory. I would do it but I only leave the house for depression walks with my dog.
Bouncy piano and faded, layered background vocals bring us into the verse as the rolling dance-bass and falsetto lead vocals take over on this upbeat summer bop. The ranged vocal performance is juxtaposed with hip-hop/R&B adjacent verse work to smoothly round out the genre-bending performance that has a nostalgic sound akin to a remixed Maroon 5 anthem circa 2010, specifically the pitched-up vocals in 'Misery', in the best way possible. Monroe & Moralezz enlisted the help of singer Zach Sorgen to produce the wistful vocal performance.
Monroe & Moralezz started in 2009 as a small experimental production duo out of Austria. The pair blend their eclectic musical tastes and employ their vast knowledge of genres varying from EDM to funk to curate an ever-shifting discography with no song like its predecessors. They often collaborate with artists from all over the world to keep their musical repertoire fresh and their influence far-reaching.
