Premiered during Morgan Page’s recent MPP3d bus tour, “Against the Tour” is a moving and powerful song of unity between two people. The progressive pop track is almost a battle of contrasts; multilayered yet pristine, and energetic yet pretty, it really stands out from similar tracks that have been released over the past few months. Michael S contributes a solid vocal performance filled with emotion similar in style to “Leaving You” with Audien, but with the completely opposite message. Actually, the more I listen to the lyrics, I keep think its the modern interpretation of an old Helen Reddy song (written by Daft Punk collaborator Paul Williams) of a similar title. New remixes by Tony Romera and Denzal Park add a bit of electro for primetime dance floor energy while keeping the tone and message firmly in place. It might be a bit late for Valentine’s Day, but “Against the World” would be a perfect song to send to someone special in your life.
