xo sad – FOLLOW U
xo sad are an electronic duo who are starting to garner a reputation for emotional, powerful and vibrant dance music. Their new single ‘Follow U’ is no exception and is an instant anthem. Partnering with Players Republik and Eden Esports for this release, ‘Follow U’ is the main anthem for gaming event ‘The Champions Cup’. ‘The Champions Cup’ is a top tier Counter Strike Global Offensive tournament that is being hosted around the world. This year, the grand final is in Malta, the winner will walk away with a mouth watering $500,000!!
‘Follow U’ is the follow up to singles ‘I fall Apart’ and ‘Sad!’. Both of these were big hitting singles and ‘Follow U’ is no different. You can tell that each layer has been carefully produced, with dominant, rock inspired vocals clearly cutting through over the high impact production. I found these vocals to be very reminiscent of Twenty One Pilots. The emotion behind the track clearly resonates the songs meaning – “Follow You’ is a song about the importance of someone in your life. You can never go through the obstacles of living without the aid of family, friends or love. Here we wanted to depict the cry of gratitude that we express towards people that support us at our lowest and at our best, thus the line “I won’t fall if I follow you”.
