After their recent Monstercat release Walk Thru Fire, the Dutch duo have unveiled a brand new song featuring the vocals of Haley Reinhart who is a singer, songwriter, and a Platinum selling artist. This new single, called Something Strange is the title track from their upcoming EP ‘Elements’ which is set to come out in 2019 and is a heart-warming piece of music, to say the least.
Starting off with rich piano chords and melodies that instantly give you a good feeling, the track definitely hints at something beautiful. The illuminating vocals from Haley add a lot more color to the bright nature of the production from Vicetone. With a groovy vibe that can light up a gloomy day for you, the track definitely leaves a lasting impact.
“We’d created the track and needed a vocal, and tried combining it with a vocal that we wrote with Haley for a completely different song,” he says. “It ended up fitting like a glove—even better than the track the vocal was actually written for—which is really kind of crazy.” – Ruben, Vicetone
The duo, comprised of Ruben and Victor have made a mark for themselves in short span of time. Making an entry into the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs list three times explains their popularity among the masses. 2016 saw the release of their first EP Aurora which created some buzz while their second EP is set to come out early next year. Vicetone also performs at the world’s biggest music festivals including Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Ultra Japan, Ultra Bali, as well as Tomorrowland and TomorrowWorld.
“I wrote the top line for Vicetone a while ago for another artist in mind; they came back and wanted my voice on it! This tune has such electricity in it, as the lyric expresses a darker side of a relationship. I’m very excited to tap into the dance music world!” – Haley Reinhart
Born into a musical family gaining influences from rock and roll, funk, jazz, and classic pop music, Haley started singing with Midnight before going on to join a high school band which enabled her to perform across Europe at an early age. She rose to fame as she finished 3rd on the season 10 of American Idol. Reinhart made her full-length debut with Listen Up!, a 2012 Interscope Records release that premiered at #17 on the Billboard 200 chart.
The coming together of these two incredible talents is what brings out such an amazing piece of music and we hope to see them collaborate more often! Let us know your thoughts about the track below. Download it here.
