Today’s delicious song of the day comes from California-based Poolside. ‘I Feel High‘ sees the producer team up with duo DRAMA in a song essentially about exploring the themes of being young and invincible.
Mixing together Poolside’s up-tempo dance instrumentals, Rosa’s vocals and spoken word passages, the song features percussion, synths and also a little bit of production from DRAMA’s other member, Na’el.
DRAMA have really transformed the song from a classic laid back Poolside vibe into a beat, over arching vocal heavy anthem. “When I was younger me and my friends would sneak back into the house after a night of partying, the first thing we’d ask each other before going inside is ‘do I look high?’ Rosa expresses on the release of the song. “And although I really felt the need to incorporate that into the song for ‘personal nostalgia’ I think everyone has experienced that reality.”
This song is giving off some great PNAU & Ladyhawke vibes, especially like their ‘River‘ collaboration.
