When we say “You’ve Never Heard Something Like Lau.ra “Sideways” Before!”, this is not a click bait title (although it might look like it). The collaboration between these two bring something so innovative. Needwant must have been so ecstatic when they heard this demo. I can just imagine how fast they jumped on this release, I know we would have!
The vocal is so damn catchy and intoxicating, it brings a hint of Electro Pop and Hip Hop flavors to the track, making it super accessible and captivating. Add the relentless and snappy melody to the recipe and you have something that will be stuck in your head for days. However, this is just the beginning. Once you reach the 1:05 mark, the bass is so thick and intense, it has an insanely raw “in your face” feel! It will make nightclubs vibrate in a way that they have never experienced before. If you’re listening to this with headphones, it might just make you fall off your chair, or blow up your ear-drum.
Lau.ra and Secaina really created something fresh and unique. We seriously hope to hear more collaboration between these two in the future! Make sure to add this one to your playlists!
