Article by: Christian Langston
Coming off of major performances and collaborations, Highlnd and SABAI continue to build off their most successful year to date. Enlisting songwriting phenoms Ni/Co, best known for their representation of Alabama on NBC's "American Song Contest," “Dead In The Water” is an emotional ballad joined with a gritty electronic essence.
“Dead In The Water” opens with a spotlight on the vocals, supporting the lyrical message with a lonely background chord progression. The audience can feel the presence of the ardent songwriting room. Periodically adding in more rhythmic elements and a driving reese bass, Highlnd and SABAI raise the energy as they enter into a powerful marching snare build.
The tension built through the first minute is released with a medley of sounds, drawing a spark from trap and melodic bass influences. Huge synths and powerful drums wash over the listener, invoking the forlorn message in the lyrics. Bearing a varied second verse and drop, “Dead In The Water” offers a grand listening experience.
The combined talent from SABAI, Highlnd, and Ni/Co is monumental; “Dead In The Water” exemplifies this penchant for artistry. Exhibiting a combination of exceptional songwriting and production, they are able to weave a powerful dance track full of emotion.
