Dallas quartet @NorthernNatl kick off the year with rocking fist pumper “Slow Down”

NORTHERN NATIONAL, “Slow Down”

Despite rock and alternative rock not being the current flavours in pop music, invested musicians like those in Dallas quartet Northern National continue to offer top quality songs like their new single “Slow Down”.  The spirit of the song is self-confidence and facing up to a challenge – about not slowing or backing down – brought to you in a similar anthemic style to Imagine Dragons without going over the top.  Michael Rossi’s vocal is full of restraint but also unleashes a lot of power when the energy level rises in the song.  “Slow Down” would fit perfectly into either mainstream or alternative rock radio and would definitely help bring the house down as a set closer in concert.  Add it to your playlist of new rock anthems at the Spotify link above.

Bright futuristic remix by Dutch teen @WRLDmusic for @Lights’ “Slow Down”

LIGHTS, “Slow Down” (WRLD remix)

The Juno-award winning album Little Machines by Lights has had long legs since its original release in 2014.  Dutch teen remixer WRLD continues this with his futuristic and carefree rework of “Slow Down”.  It’s really quite the original shimmering makeover, with crazy sounds popping out of everywhere, definitely taking the song by a Canadian artist not necessarily associated with dance music to a level that would not have been expected.  It’s instantly likeable and I think would have no trouble winning over even the most critical Lights fan.  Download it for free at the above link.
