San Francisco-based producer AIR APPARENT joins forces with Boston indie duo DAVVN to deliver their inaugural single of the year, ‘three strikes’.
The track sees the blossoming producers seamlessly weave glimmering vocals with dreamy electro-pop melodies. ‘three strikes’ is available now across all digital streaming platforms.
‘three strikes’ introduces itself with lush vocals and a budding melody. AIR APPARENT and DAVVN inject their respective pop-infused sounds, creating a concoction of swirling harmonies. The alluring vocals provide a catchy overlay for the enthralling soundscape. A nod to the ageless proverb, “fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me”, the lyrics represent the challenges of allowing oneself to be vulnerable in a new relationship after being hurt in the past. The lyrics “three strikes, then your off my mind” lend an enticing hook to the breezy chorus. Bridging the gap between genres, ‘three strikes’ is a majestic collaboration for both rising artists.
“DAVVN and I found each other via Soundcloud. When we shared demos back and forth, ‘three strikes’ really stood out to me because of both the delivery and lyrics. I felt like it was a gem the world needed to hear! From there, we collaborated back and forth on the track to try and achieve a sound that felt fresh, contemplative, poppy, yet rhythmic. So excited about where it ended up. I feel like it has the best parts of both of our artist projects: strong hooks, dreamy soundscapes, and rhythmic enough to make you move.” – AIR APPARENT
