Slow and steady wins the race, right? At least that’s the first thing that comes to mind as the instrumentals in GRiZ’s “Before I Go” (ft. Leo Napier) slowly accumulate into a pretty incredible cacophony of sound, replete with horn section and an unexpectedly fitting deep bass. It isn’t until 1:56 that the vocals set in, soulful and raspy and fitting for this sound, although we aren’t completely sure how. It’s like there is a full orchestra in our headphones, and we’re just trying to imagine the stellar live performance factor here.
Let’s give this one a two thumbs up, shall we?
