SONG OF THE DAY: Bauer & Lanford – “Leave Me Behind”
While the whole world is engulfed in the musical magic of Avicii’s debut album ‘True,’ let’s take a listen to a track by a few other talented Swedes. Bauer and Lanford have been quickly building an impressive resume of remixes (Estelle, Adrian Lux) and productions (“Out of Control” with Michael Wermeets, “Another Day.”) “Leave Me Behind” is their official introduction to the US, a progressive pop dance tracks that combines thoughtful, almost Empire of the Sun sounding verses with a more pounding chorus. The vocals of Sara Josefsson are quite gorgeous and she will no doubt be picked up by other edm producers looking for an innocent and raw emotional performance. The animated cartoon video (created by Nick Murray Willis) is both haunting and empowering at the same time as the lead character struggles with personal demons and betrayal. DJs should watch out for the forthcoming remix package fearing a hot mix from Kryder amongst others.
