Songwriters Behind Swedish House Mafia Launch New Project and Debut Track

Who can forget iconic songs like ‘Don’t You Worry Child’ and ‘Save the World’? The magic behind them came from mega talented songwriters John Martin and Michel Zitron. They’re work includes some of the biggest songs in EDM including Tiesto‘s ‘Red Lights,’ Martin Garrix‘s ‘Now That I’ve Found You’ and even Avicii‘s ‘Fade Into Darkness’, but now the two are taking their talents to the next level. Together they’ve launched VCATION to bring you even more iconic tunes. Through VCATION, they aim to bring you dreamy melodies with subtle dance beats starting with their debut single ‘Lay Low’.

‘Lay Low’ starts smooth and groovy, setting the prefect mood for a summer track. Light instrumentation let’s the vocals shine as you hear some of their previous works’ melodic influences. Next, driving bass pairs with soft synths to really bring home that beachside feeling. While the electronic elements are minimal, they pair perfectly with the acoustic sounds and serve as an example of the duo’s songwriting mastery.

“‘Lay Low is about allowing yourself a break, a breath of fresh air and maybe just pulling the curtains down for a day. The world is f…d up, and we play a bit with irony in the song regarding the current state of society, and regarding ourselves and our own behaviours,”

VCATION definitely has us warmed up and we can’t wait to see what else they bring. In the meantime take an escape with ‘Lay Low’ below.
