Still buzzing off the release of Kaivon and Nevve’s inaugural single “Whole Life,” Insomniac’s newly launched label Lost In Dreams looks to impress once again with Crystal Skies and JT Roach’s “Crazy While We’re Young.”
Showcasing the sounds of melodic bass music, Lost In Dreams’ newest offering serves as a pop-tinged beauty fueled by rhythmic guitar notes and delicate vocal melodies.
JT Roach highlights that the single, “Was written by me, Colyer, and Rob Persaud at Rob’s home studio in Studio City, CA. I had worked with both of them before and we all got along great, which is why I feel we were able to be vulnerable with one another while creating this song. We decided “Crazy While We’re Young” would be a song about our experiences with taking risks as young men, both in going for our dreams and in fun times that we’ve had with our friends and loved ones. It has always been a favorite of my demos and I know it is my dad’s personal favorite too because when he listens to it, he still feels like the lyrics pertain to him. It serves as a reminder that you are never too old to live “Crazy While You’re Young.”
Crystal Skies adds, ”Working with JT, a phenomenal vocalist and songwriter has been a great experience for us. We really tried to preserve the raw emotion of the instrumental and vocals- while filling out the production and adding a powerful drop section – and making this something that could move the dance floor. The result is a song that bridges together the genres of folk, pop, and electronic into one track that hopefully lets each style shine through without overpowering the others. “Crazy While We’re Young” is definitely a departure from our typical sound, but we were captivated by the vocals/instrumentals from the first listen and knew we had to work on it. The lyrics really fit with the vibe we were going for – a Summertime anthem about the excitement and challenges that come with taking chances and not settling for the “safe path.”
