To close out August, Calabasas and Marc E Bassy released a catchy pop track that will lead listeners into an introspective reflection on past moments of wanting to say something but not having the courage to do so. While the lyrics may be hauntingly relatable, the infectious melodies and powerful vocals assure that this will be a repeat play as the summer months continue to draw to a close.
LA-based pop due Calabass (Watrcup, Franskiiz) showcases themselves as an undeniable force entering the world of pop, collaborating with artists like Kanye West and UnoTheActivist. They bury personal experiences inside of bold and boisterous alternative pop punctuated by hip-hop rhymes, electronic waves, R&B grooves, and cinematic flourishes. After releasing their breakout single “Believe In Me” in July 2020, the duo has experienced an upward trajectory by quickly amassing millions of streams and multiple playlist placements.
The duo collaborated with San Francisco-born singer/songwriter Marc E Bassy, known for his mastery of orchestrating heartbreak records for the masses, to release “Voices,” a thoughtful and powerful pop smash. Filled with energetic basslines, magnetizing vocals, and enchanting lyrics, “Voices” carries a hypnotizing vibe while listeners are brought down a reflective pathway. The masterfully penned lyrics relay how it feels to have wanted to say something in a past relationship, but now that time has passed, and you’re stuck with “All the words I never said, turn to voices in my head.” It’s a catchy end-of-summer walk down memory lane type of track that will get you dancing while you reflect.
