The dynamic duo team up yet again for another highly-anticipated fan favorite.
With numerous eyes and ears added to our agency recently, our senses have never been more sharp for those who bring their unique skill and sound to the industry. The Filthy Beat Inspectors are always on the lookout for releases to quench our insatiable thirst for bass music.
Over the past few months Jeff Montalvo, known the world over as Seven Lions, shocked the melodic bass community when it was announced that he would be releasing his debut album Beyond The Veil. As time has led up to the anticipated release of said album three singles have been released, with the latest coming in the form of Stop Thinking which had a world premier last year at Red Rocks Amphitheatre during Seven Lions' very own festival Chronicles III.
The track features alt-pop powerhouse Lights on vocals singing powerful messages of self-love and resilience. The production combines elements of trap, dance pop, midtempo and even trance with huge show-stopping breakdowns and instantly catchy lead melodies.
As with every piece of work that he releases, Seven Lions allows the listener to interpret a song in their own unique way. Whatever meaning his tracks may have originally had, they never cease to tug at the heartstrings and take us fans on an unforgettable journey for an everlasting experience.
The track has unmistakable characteristics that both artists are well known for: Seven Lions with his otherworldly, immeasurable presence and Lights with her voice that commands the attention of an audience no matter how big the room may be. The breakdowns mentioned above pace the song in such a perfect way that it's no wonder why fans have been feral with anticipation.
Seven Lions and Lights previously collaborated on Seven Lions’ track “Falling Away”, which has become an undeniable fan favorite.
There really are no faults to be found with this release. I think it's safe to say that after ten years of listening to Seven Lions, Stop Thinking has solidified itself on a personal Mount Rushmore of favorite songs. With each of the three songs having their own unique origins further adding depth to the track list, we can't wait to see what else Seven Lions has in his arsenal for his debut album coming October 21 on Ophelia Records.
Melodic Dubstep is here to stay.
