soso & MTNS – Trust

LA-based duo soso has teamed up with Australian powerhouse band-member of MTNS to release their new single “Trust”.

This song starts like a vibey slow-burn, building with sparse percussion and the dark undertones of a rising bass. The chorus strips this all away to reveal a bright atmosphere of arpeggiated plucks, light piano, and spacious vocals.

It’s an intense contrast, but sets the tone for the rest of the song, preparing us for wherever soso & MTNS wants to take us sonically. The dark spaces carry weight and the bright choruses float and glide, weightless.

These two ideas come together in the finale, maintaining the bright atmosphere while injecting a darkness to the ideas we felt comfortable with.

“Trust” is an intense new single that comes that comes from an awesome collaboration that spans the globe.
