Seven Lions has long been known for his melodic dubstep productions like "Rush Over Me", but has pivoted outward from his signature sound lately with releases such as "Falling Away". Most recently, he's shared "Cold Skin" that beautifully captures his melodic talents, but channels a more downtempo style.
The collaboration between Seven Lions and Echos comes in on Monstercat and embraces a soothing vibe that's overlaid with soft melodies and airy vocals. Lexi Norton of electronic duo Echos says the following with respect to how the song came about:
"I remember I was at dinner when Tal called me and told me that Seven Lions wanted to make a track with us. I try to not let myself get excited over much, but imagine getting a phone call saying that one of your favorite artists wants to collaborate with you. That was probably the best feeling in the world."
Seven Lions also mentions that Lexi has "such a great voice, and I don't think a lot of people expected at Seven Lions/Echos collaboration." The up-and-coming Portland act has been steadily building the fan base with textured, electronic releases filled with emotion. You can listen to "Cold Skin" below and purchase your copy on iTunes.
