BEAUTZ, LuxLyfe ft. TL – Warning Signs
Strange Fruits, an independent record label based founded by Steve Void has taken Soundcloud by storm posting a new song every week. Last week, the label dropped BEAUZ & LuxLyfe’s Warning Signs, featuring TL. You can find more music from BEAUZ and LuxLyfe on their SoundClouds pages, but as for TL… she’s a mystery, but absolutely crushes the vocals on this song. The three teamed up to bring you this perfectly composed bop. Warning Signs embodies all the aspects of a standard dance and EDM jam and amplifies them. Seriously, this song should have been all over the radio yesterday.
There are layers of dynamic range and mixing in this song, and the chorus builds over keyboard and drums. The bass drop in the middle and end of the song gently matches its’ tone; it’s not overbearing or overly aggressive. Having received support from, and having remixed songs from artists like the Chainsmokers and Cash Cash, it’s easy to see how BEAUZ has incorporated that influence into their music, but not without putting their own spin on it first.
With the help of LuxLyfe and TL, Warning Signs is a throw-caution-to-the-wind, power-pop ballad and classic EDM bop that will have girls all around the world screaming the lyrics at the top of their lungs. Trust me, we’ve all been there. “You’re covered in warning signs/ it’s reckless but I don’t mind. ” Anyone who that says they haven’t taken a very questionable leap of faith with a “bad boy” (or girl! Or whoever!) is straight up lying.
Warning Signs reminds me of Cascada’s Everytime We Touch, which makes it even more endearing. This song is the summer I snuck out of my house to play beer pong with a guy in a band that was six years older than me. It’s the year I convinced my best friend to sneak out of the house and go to a party where we ended up taking turns holding each other’s hair to puke in the toilet until 4 am. BEAUTZ, LuxLyfe and TL’s Warning Signs has me nostalgically thinking back to every questionable and/or reckless decision I’ve made and realizing that it was all definitely worth it.
