Happy Friday everyone, Dr. Whuzzerface here!
This song was just released yesterday so it is hot off the press and FREE for you to enjoy. Did I say free? Oh yeah! Converse commissioned 3 epic artists to do a collaboration and the result can be summed up in 3 amazing words: synthesizers, luchadors, & Kimbra. I’m a such a sucker for synthesizers, they just get my digital soul moving. What do I mean by luchadors? Do I mean costumed Mexican fighters? I do, and that is exactly what the music video (down below) is focused on. It even starts getting to a point where the fighting starts to look like it came straight from the movie Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, which I adore. And Kimbra is such a doll, I think she deserves special mention.
Let’s not forget the other 2 fellas who helped on this. A-Trak is one of my favorite remixers around. I’m 95% sure that all the synth work and basic song structure of this tune is result of his genius. He can take the lamest of top 40’s songs and make it listenable to my sensitive ears. As for Mark Foster, you might know him better as the frontman for a group called Foster The People who hit it big last year with the song “Pumped Up Kicks”.
If you love the song, I was serious when I said it was free. Free things on Good Friday = an awesome weekend! All you have to do is follow this link to the Converse page, click “Download Track” and it will be yours to love and cherish without any cost.
Enjoy the video! (And don’t forget to subscribe or comment! I’d love to get your feedback.)
