It’s Friday, the sun is shining, and the latest from MØ and Diplo is the perfect soundtrack to your afternoon. We’ve heard a few collaborations between the two in the past, including “Lean On” with DJ Snake and “Get It Right.” Although the saying is such a cliché, these two make a dynamic duo with a lasting effect on today’s pop music.
Today, MØ and Diplo are back with their breezy, high-spirited single “Sun In Our Eyes.” It’s easy to get sick of summertime tracks that talk up dancing in the sunlight and embracing the warm weather, but this one’s got a memorable flair. MØ possesses a raw, carefree voice that emulates everything she’s singing about: “I feel the sunlight on my head / The scent of summer in my bed / When we were footprints in the sand / Stealing liquor, making plans.” It brings me back to the kind of summer I had after I graduated from high school without a care in the world. On top of MØ’s deliciously nostalgic singing and lyricism, Diplo provides the setting for it all. The feel-good piano melody at the introduction dances its way throughout the song, building with pop-fueled percussion and claps. With brilliant execution, it’s a slam-dunk seasonal stunner.
“Sun In Our Eyes” is the lead single off MØ’s forthcoming sophomore album Forever Neverland due out on October 19th. Check it out below.
