ELECTRIC POLAR BEARS and TYLER GRAVES, “Back 2 You”
“Back 2 You” has an interesting strategy for a dance pop release – it aims for your head and your heart, and then your feet. This is thanks to the smooth and involving story about a couple who have lost their magic together, and it’s up to one of them to rekindle the sparks. You might of heard of producer/DJ duo Electric Polar Bears, and their energetic concerts and parties over the past few years where they are masked in LED polar bear helmets, while singer and co-writer Tyler Graves is the pitch-perfect voice behind two Seven Lions favourites, “Only One” and “Senseless”. Together they’ve created an engaging song inspired by what some people are going through during isolation in lockdowns. And the video, which stars Instagram and Tik Tok “queen of the shuffle” Elena Cruz, helps take you to a happier, blissful place such as the dance party by the EPB’s, when we will one day be able to celebrate together. The EPB’s future/tech-house mix with familiar pop synths is inspired and stands out from the rest.
