New music video! Sunlounger ft. Chase - Surrender
Last year, with his 'Balearic Beauty' album, Roger Shah shaped a summer all of his own. Its first single - the Alexandra Badoi-sung 'I'll Be Fine' - captivated fans of old, won fans of new and gave Roger another huge club hit. Now, with a new summer fast approaching, May 19th sees 'I'll Be Fine's primetime follow-up.
'Surrender' has proved a forum favourite, a hot request at Roger's live shows and one of the foremost jewels in the fourth Sunlounger LP's sound crown. Featuring the vocals of West Virginian-raised/LA-based singer/songwriter Chase, 'Surrender' arrives in single form with a complete remix spectrum. Sound-crafters including Walden, Pierre Pienaar, Brian Laruso, Raul Pablo Sanchez and Roger himself (under his Areeena alias) have taken 'Surrender' to spaces far and wide.
With its folk-ish tones, lyrically and vocally Chase channels everything from indie to baroque pop into 'Surrender'. In its Original Mix form, Roger takes all those well known Sunlounger instruments and elements - gently thrummed guitars, timpani drums, analogue synths and wistfully plucked string sections - to deliver the track's reclined cool. On his Touching Your Soul rework, Brian Laruso adds shuffling and live-sounding cabasa and marimba percussion loops, giving the track beachfront ambiance.
