SONG OF THE DAY: NERVO & Hook N Sling – “Reason”
Aussie EDM producers/DJs/artists/sisters Nervo have had an amazing year thanks to some incredible collaborations – “You’re Gonna Love Again” with Avicii, and “Something to Believe In” with Norman Doray. Since “Reason,” their track with Hook N Sling, was released back in September on Spinnin Records – it has been gaining quite a buzz. The big room stadium house track is the perfect mix of progressive-sounding club beats and aggressive electro noises, with a measured dose of meaningful pop lyrics. The breakdown in the middle is quite gorgeous with the gradual keyboard build into the drum fill leading to an explosion of energy. It’s also quite refreshing to see the focus of the song is on the strong original remix, rather than a large set of remixes which have little to do with the original song. The only negative is the video treatment which showcases three random girls on a crime and party spree. Yeah, there is probably some allusion to the song’s meaning in there somewhere, but the emotional nature of the lyrics would be much better translated via a performance by Olivia and Mim. I mean, come on, when you are gorgeous Covergirl models, why waste video time on unrelated girls?
