In 2017, we live in a post-genre society. Hip-hop and dance are obvious crossover lovers, and the pop and dance scenes merge harder every day. What the world needs now is synthy-sweet dance rock.
Grabbitz is a solo artist who blends ’90s rock attitudes with electronic groove. Savoy is a three-piece band that brings a rebel edge to any danceable beat. It’s only right that the two meld minds on a pumped up jam.
“Contemplate” will satisfy the synth-pop seeker in you. It’s got a triumphant ’80s feeling right from the word go. Grabbitz takes the mic with some sweeping soulful easiness. It’s a perfect pairing that we think brings out the best in both worlds.
“We had been talking to Grabbitz about working together for a long time,” the trio says in an emailed joint statement. “I think we’re both in the same mindset of wanting to take our electronic and rock backgrounds to the next level and make something new and unique, but still relatable to what our fans know us for. We’re really excited to be releasing this collaboration on Monstercat, which has been an amazing home to both of us in the past and has such an energized and loyal fanbase.”
“Savoy is a band I always saw myself working with,” Grabbitz echoes. “They always deliver quality music and spend time to get it right. They sent me a rough instrumental, and I jumped on it because I connected with it right away. Really hope to perform it live with them someday.”
“Contemplate” is the kind of wave you can ride from day to night. It’s out on Monstercat now. Listen to it below.
