REVELRIES, “Pulling Me Down”
Right on the heels of their recent single “Heatwave”, which has already clocked up over three million streams on Spotify alone, Emirati duo Revelries delivers another high quality house banger with the rock-flavoured “Pulling Me Down”. This one’s about decisively cutting ties from a relationship that was increasingly becoming toxic, always an important lesson to learn in retrospect, but hard to figure out as it is happening. But its brisk house rhythm mirrors the sucker punches that we take over and over again as the Billy Corgan-sounding vocal by the uncredited male singer unfolds the tale. Revelries continue to release intriguing songs with often uncharacteristic themes or arrangements. “Pulling Me Down” has plenty of food for thought, but its affecting chorus and fast pace will work well for clubs.
