SONG OF THE DAY: TOKiMONSTA ft MNDR – “Go With It”
Let’s take a journey to the left field. Those in the know have been following Jennifer Lee, aka Tokimonsta, for years with her atmospheric soundscapes melding avant-garde hip-hop and grooved-out electronic beats. Expressing her unique point of view with experimental instrumentation, she’s been touring and releasing gorgeously quirky tracks that would make Bjork moist. For the new single “Go With It,” she teams with MNDR for an otherworldy track that has a subtle pop feel. The downtempo beats incorporate elements of moombahton, broken beat, and dubstep with Indian and Asian instrumentation for a lush, multi-layered track that will lull you into a trance. MNDR’s vocals are just as intriguing, with repeated hooks and multiple vocal textures that mimic the track. The video clip, revolving around a foreshadowing dream, is exquisitely cinematic drawing you in with the same embrace as the track. “Go With It” sounds like nothing else out there, the only parallel would be the Gotye track from last year and like that, this could become the leftfield smash that explodes out of nowhere.
