Bobby Green's 'Floods' Feels Like Dancing on Sunshine: Exclusive
If you live in New York like Bobby Green, the passing of Labor Day means preparing for the hard embrace of winter, but don't get down. It's still a sunny 80-something degrees out there, and the first day of fall isn't until Sept. 22. Also, Green just gave you one of the warmest musical hugs you've had all year.
“Floods” is snap-along sugary goodness for your ear holes. We can just see The Foxies singer hopping around in a yellow sun-dress through a field of daisies. This song sounds like the way a 17-year-old talks to her best girlfriend about her latest crush, but the production is sophisticated enough for the most curmudgeonly old hipster to appreciate.
"Julia (of The Foxies) and I have been wanting to work together for a long time, and this track is a perfect melding of our styles,” Green says. “When this project first started to come together, it immediately felt so enjoyable and familiar, like a song you’ve been waiting to hear for years. Julia’s voice infuses so much energy and spirit into this track, it just reaches out and grabs you. Once we had created that spinal-tapping core of the song, the biggest challenge for me as a producer was staying out of its way.”
“Floods” is out Friday, Sept. 9, but you can check it out below exclusively on Billboard Dance.
