Since forming in 2008, the pair (and real life couple) took on real estate projects to finance Dance Loudand “Why Lie” is inspired by a realtor they knew who consistently lied. The downtempo soundscape of the moody track ebbs and flows alongside the hushed delivery while chilling piano and sinewy guitar wrap around the production of the track. “Why Lie” is the third single off their forthcoming debut indie album The Moment, out June 5th. A reflection of the struggles of the world and the emotions within it, The Moment is meant to be listened to as a whole in an endless loop and can be described as “emotional dance music,” offering sounds you can dance and cry to.
“You have to stand out in order to stand a chance these days. Our love for producing and audio engineering comes first to the lyrics. Our life struggles are fuel to the lyrics written for not just between our love but for the love of the world as it needs it,” shares Dance Loud. “There is more hate than love so we are here to spread it in hopes everyone will reach a higher frequency. “
“Why Lie” follows the 420 inspired release of “Shady Beach” about getting stoned and spreading love in a divided world. CLICK HERE to watch. CLICK HERE to stream/ download.
