The Evolution of A Song

First it was the song Summit with Ellie Goulding. As much as I love her voice, the track couldn’t help but feel incomplete. So Skrillex stripped it down; he took out her vocals, shortened it and reworked it so the background was now a little less distracting. It had a sweet but still biting feel to it. Finally the right voice came along; Krewella and the lyrics are what this song sorely needed. With Breathe the evolution was complete. When you listen to Breathe you’re in it. You feel the cloud rising within you about to burst and then the drop hits. You are sunk to the bottom of the ocean with icy tendrils scratching in your ears. You may never touch the sky but at least you can rush along with the ecstasy and slight pain that any bird feels. They soar until they can’t anymore but trying to get there was all that mattered in the first place. Let this song take you on a journey and do not worry about the destination. As soon as it ends you will be badly missing it. It’s that kind of addiction. I prefer this more than most of the tracks on Bangarang. I will take a production-light (at least for Skrillex), well-sung and interesting track over heavy-produced dubstep any day.
